BIO

Carlos Saéz (Valencia 1988) is a multidiscipline artist specialised in digital media. His principle object of study is the relationship between the human and technology, which he often develops in his work, bringing to the fore the aesthetic of the machinery itself and its programming. In his series “Hardware Fetish” the artist gives tribute to the abandoned technological apparatus, especially the screen. In this ambit he creates pieces halfway between machine and religious relic in which he honours the negative space which the non-flux of information leaves behind. One of the most present concepts in his work is “morphological freedom” proposed in the philosophy of extropy. For this he makes use of media such as illustration, video or 3D, to capture the desire of the human being to modify his or her natural appearance in the virtual environment. In 2012 Carlos created Cloaque.org: a curatorial web project based on the concept of the “exquisite cadaver” which other digital artists from all over the world have collaborated on.
 
Carlos Sáez has exhibited works at: The Whitney Museum of American Art (NY), The Museum of Modern Art (NY), MAMCO (Ginebra), Museum of the Moving Image (NY), Untitled Art Fair (Miami), National Portrait Gallery (London), The Armory Show (NY), Transfer Gallery (NY), La Térmica (Málaga), Las Naves (Valencia) and Espai Tactel (Valencia).
