Fernando García-Dory's (b. 1978) work engages specifically with the relationship between culture and nature now, as manifested in multiple contexts, from landscape and the rural, to desires and expectations concerned with identity, through to (global) crisis, utopia and the potential for social change. He studied Fine Arts and Rural Sociology, and now is now preparing for his PhD in Agroecology. Interested in the harmonic complexity of biological forms and processes, his work addresses connections from microorganisms to social systems, and from traditional art languages such as drawing to collaborative agroecological projects, actions, and cooperatives. He also addresses these interests through work with institutions such as Casco Office for Art, Architecture and Design, Tensta Konsthalle, Gwangju Biennale, Istanbul Biennale and dOCUMENTA (13).
