Andrea Alkalay is an art photographer currently based in Buenos Aires. She holds a degree in Industrial Design, so materials have always been tools to highlight concepts. She uses photography as a way of thinking and looks for the poetic and political potential that arises from the observation, exploring the medium’s ability to manipulate perceptions of reality. Another line of inquiry of her practice is the voyage. The condition of foreignness and displacement is a source of inspiration. She is interested in the discrepancy between what we see and what we know.
¨Art is a path to authentic, a search for the truth, which I know It doesn't exist. Anyhow, the attempt seems to be valid for me, and that encourages what I do and say¨. (A.A.)
