About Andrea Alkalay

I was born in Argentina and have a degree in Industrial Design from the University of Buenos Aires, so materials have always been tools to highlight ideas/concepts on its symbolic presence. I think through the image, looking for the poetic and political potential that arises from the observation exploring photography’s ability to manipulate perceptions of reality.
A line of inquiry that defines my practice is the voyage. The condition of foreignness and displacement is a source of inspiration. I am interested in the discrepancy between what we see and what we know, where these qualities contradict each other and coexist simultaneously.

My work is exhibited abroad by being awarded. Live and work in Buenos Aires .
