Fernando Ortega was born in Mexico in 1971. He lives and works in Mexico City. He is represented by the Kurimanzutto gallery in Mexico City.
Fernando Ortega is developing a polymorphous way of working (in-situ interventions, ready-mades, photographs, videos, etc.) in which the mise en scène of a work often evolves to resonate with the exhibition space. All of his work is built on the basis of chance, seemingly unimportant circumstances, and ephemeral situations capable of reconciling and establishing links between the intellectual research he conducts and sensory experiences.
