Gabriel Holzapfel

Gabriel Holzapfel, (Puerto Montt, 1988) is a visual artist and musician. He currently lives and works in Valparaiso, Chile.

His work is characterised by the crossing of formats and by the use of residual materials and objects. It is an effort to broaden the meaning of things and create new spaces of thought around concepts such as Disappearance, Entropy, Memory or that which is derived from recent history and human activity.

His work is permeated by an acute use of language and maintains a strong poetic bond with a critical perspective, marked by humour and irony. Holzapfel maintains a personal interest in constructing visual allegories, generating questions, sowing doubts, double or triple readings.
