Mariano Ortega bases his interdisciplinary art production on the consequences of memory and emptiness that touch each other, creating new shapes of perception.
The remembrance of memory carries oblivion that configures reality through layers and layers of awareness over our world, building an impenetrable surface about our consciousness of time and memory and at the same time, recycling our existence into a new experience.
Born in México City, he currently lives and works in Madrid and attends the Master’s degree in Artistic Disciplines of Escuela SUR at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in partnership with the UC3M.
