Héctor Eliazar Ortiz

Héctor Eliazar Ortiz (Santo Domingo, 1981) has undertaken degrees in Engineering Studies (UNPHU) and Photography (EAF, Buenos Aires). They first exhibited their work by participating in the underground artistic movements of Buenos Aires through feminist and LGBTQI collectives. On returning to Santo Domingo, Héctor was awarded an Honorable Mention at the XXVII Santo Domingo Biennial among other awards and recognitions. They settled in Las Terrenas and began to work with materials from the milieu, incorporating the environment into their work. Nature provides them with structures and metaphors to dialogue about masculinity, language, and the (de)colonial. Photography is a unit in his practice, which includes documentation, sketches, installations, performance, and drawings which are articulated through the photographic camera.
