Juan Cortes



The Colombian artist, born in 1989, lives and works in Bogotá, Colombia. My works take multiple forms, such as installation works, recordings, and concert pieces. I am interested in sound and the natural forces that are the basis and foundation of my work. I am also interested in interdisciplinary and research processes.
