Lorenzo Sandoval (Madrid, 1980) works in the crossing points of artistic practice, curatorial processes and spatial design. He holds a B.F.A and a Masters in Photography, Art and Technology from the UPV, (Universitat Politécnica de Valéncia). Sandoval has attended international residencies in Berlin, (GlogauAIR), Portugal (Vila Nova) and in Nairobi, (Kuona Trust Studio). The work of Lorenzo Sandoval can be seen as an atmospheric process where different elements affect each other. His practice is situated between art, curation, architecture, writing, and edition. He works combining tools from those different fields to generate platforms for encounters and discursive sites that work under the idea of spatial storytelling. The interweaving of objects, displays and programs of activities produce space to reflect upon the social potentialities of the art spheres and to rehearse possibilities of organization of information, perception and bodies. http://lorenzosandoval.net/
