Fernando García-Dory (b. 1978, Madrid, Spain) lives and works between Madrid and the northern Spanish mountains. His work engages with the relationship between culture and nature, as manifested in multiple contexts, from landscape and the rural, to desires and expectations in relation to identity, crisis, utopia and social change. Interested in the harmonic complexity of biological forms and processes, his work addresses connections and cooperation, from microorganisms to social systems, and from traditional art languages such as drawing to collaborative agroecological projects, actions, and cooperatives. García-Dory’s selected group exhibitions include Roundtable: Reports from New Sweden, Tensta Museum, Stockholm, Sweden (2013); Confessions of the Imperfect, Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, Netherlands (2014); Gwangju Biennale, Gwangju, South Korea (2016); Designed in California, SF MoMA, San Francisco, USA (2018); SALTWATER: A Theory of Thought Forms, 14th Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul, Turkey (2015); Cosmopolis #2-RURALITÉ COSMOPOLITE, Centre Pompidou, Paris, France (2019) and Lumbung, documenta fifteen, Kassel, Germany (2022). He is also a coordinator of the Confederacy of Villages, an international exchange network connecting five art spaces working with rural communities across Europe.
