Daniel Steegmann Mangrané explores atmospheres that undermine the traditional boundaries between nature and culture, subjects and objects. In a constant reference to the tropics, in particular the Amazon rainforest, his work proposes new narratives that demonstrate the interconnectedness of diverse ecological systems. Through films, sculptures, drawings and installations, the artist challenges us to reflect on the complex dynamics between the elements that surround us and the environmental challenges that exist.

In Breathing Lines, Steegmann Mangrané presents a series of works that poetically transform the space through architectural, lighting and sound interventions. In the artist's words: "The museum space can no longer be a space for the accumulation of artifacts, isolated and protected from the outside world, but rather a space where our relationship to objects and reality is reconfigured."

Daniel Steegmann Mangrané was born in 1977 in Barcelona and lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The exhibition is curated by María Inés Rodríguez.
