Daniel Acosta (Argentina) is an interdisciplinary artist, coordinator of the collective SOStierra, and curator from Buenos Aires, Argentina. He uses technology and natural elements to create public actions questioning human rights, access to land, social equality, and identities. He has participated in programs and festivals in the United States, Europe, and Latin America.
THE APPEARED is grounded in the active poetry, urban explorations, and personal experiences of the artist. The work invokes memories, ghosts that haunt the present, and liberating poetics that allow for the transformation of Latin American reality restricted to a global culture and spiritual consumption. “The Appeared” are bodies in action restored with intensity and boundless imagination, tracing the four poetic directions in a circle: land, wind, fire, water.
The current complexity between new relationships, such as roboticization and the mediums of communication, between phenomena exercises a strong pressure on society, provoking its transformation and loss of identity. Said phenomena also provoke the escape of their own construction or sovereignty, developing the growth of their subjectivity and vision of the present-future. GOTEO is a participatory action where the public is displaced through symbolic spaces using streamers that will create spaces increasingly smaller in the assigned space of the Chilean city.
