Interview with André Santangelo

In response to Beatriz Milhazes’ question: “How do you develop your working process? You try a dialogue or is it a discussion?” Santangelo explains that there is a dialogue with language – both with painting and photography – but it is also a discussion, as “it is always a challenge, always like an exposed nerve”.
The artist says that from the amount of installation materials he keeps in his studio he came up with a photography series, with objects like a mattress painted with nankin and five kilometres of nylon.
Watch the interview.
