About Victor Guzman

Victor Guzman (b. 1987, Valparaiso, Chile) has an artistic practice that is mainly autobiographical and narrative. He explore ideas that shapes in many different mediums like installations, paintings, drawings and videos.

In the process he use digital measures to explore events and memories. Victor often search in a topic related to how the digital reality affects the human memory and time perception.

Victor is interested in the confrontations of cultures. Especially when the Chilean culture confronts the Norwegian culture. The collision of cultures are often his motivation of creation, but in his latest projects he have noticed that the cultures he explore with have rather started to merge than collide.
