In his works, the Chilean artist Alejandro Leonhardt, resorts to an affective sensibility to work with what has no name or value. His effort is centered on rediscovering and amplifying the potential of materials, both plastically and conceptually. His interventions about what’s discarded consists in displacements, from pure indefiniteness to a condition of exceptional ‘objects’.
“I investigate waste left by humans, material vestiges of inhabiting different contexts; signs that push me to experiment new interpretative openings for what already exists.”
"I don´t know how the computer´s keys are made, but I´m pressing them, and letters show up on a screen that I don´t know how it´s made either."
