About Rodrigo Orrantia

Rodrigo Orrantia is an art historian and independent curator, interested in expanded practices of photography also working with sculpture, performance and localised installation. Orrantia believes that exhibitions and publications are devices for experimentation and debate, where curators can work with artists from the outset of the project in a collaborative way. He is particularly interested in the connections between photography, geography and place, especially the topical relationship between nature and humans in the geologic time of the Anthropocene. Following this interest, in 2017 he was awarded Format Festival’s Habitat Award for an exhibition project entitled Modern Ornithologies, an experimental installation featuring a selection of photo books and films placed within the collection of Pickford’s House Museum in Derby.

In 2020 he was the winner of the Landskrona Foto Festival Open Call, with an exhibition project entitled The State of Things, another experimental installation, this time inviting five artists to respond to the architecture and history of this Swedish town. Orrantia believes that contemporary photographic practices interested in the materiality of the medium could also be interested in its history, and certainly in its many adjacent worlds, from printmaking through to sculpture, film and video, and live performance. 

Orrantia holds an MA Photography: Contemporary and Historical, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, London, 2011, and an MA History and Theory of Art and Architecture, National University of Colombia, 2004.
