Sebastian Diaz Morales

Sebastian Diaz Morales’s films and video installations consistently return to an examination of the linguistic and visual possibilities of narration. Influenced by South American avant-garde cinema, documentary approaches, and art films, Diaz Morales taps into the possibilities opened up by digital processing: the original video sequences become raw material for a practice that dissects the image and recomposes it. 

Sebastian Diaz Morales (b.1975, Comodoro Rivadavia) lives and works in Amsterdam. He recently participated in the 57th Venice Biennale curated by Christine Macel. In 2009 he was awarded with a Guggenheim Fellowship. Diaz Morales has exhibited in venues such as Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen, Siegen; Le Fresnoy, Tourcoing; CAC Vilnius, Vilnius; Tate Modern, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Art in General, New York; Ludwig Museum, Budapest; De Appel, Amsterdam; Bienale São Paulo; Biennale of Sydney; Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona; MUDAM, Luxembourg; Kadist Art Foundation, Paris; and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon. He is included in the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Tate Modern, London; Fundación Jumex, Mexico City; Foundazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin; Sammlung-Goetz, Munich; and the Fundacion de Arte Moderna, Museu Berardo, Lisbon.
