MALALA LEKANDER

I was born in Buenos Aires in 1976. My life flows between my place of birth and the Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego, where I am developing my work.

I mainly focus on photography and video.

To me, the island is a kind of laboratory. I am involved in an endless process, and I have this persistent feeling that there is something yet to be discovered, some sort of information. I am not interested in the landscape itself, but in the questions arising out of its observation. The movements of the sea and its rhythms are constant in my work. Tide tables are a tool I always end up resorting to, without even wantintg to. They serve as a kind of guide.

I am interested in exploring man´s relationship with himself, starting from his connection with the surroundings.

I am certain life and Art experience similar processes, and it is from that perspective that I approach my work.
