Enar de Dios Rodríguez

Interdisciplinary artist

Born in Galicia in 1986. Lives and works in Vienna

Graduated in Translation and Interpreting from the Universidade de Vigo, Enar de Dios studied Photography at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute.

His interdisciplinary work – which includes video, photography, and installation – is based on extensive research and archival material. With a central interest in the production of space, paying attention to the socio-political and environmental consequences, his work uses the reconfiguration of existing information to explore the poetic and develop its political potential.

His work has been exhibited at the Contemporary Jewish Museum (San Francisco), Project Space (Melbourne), Künstlerhaus (Vienna), 45 Salón Nacional de Artistas (Bogotá), and Palazzo Strozzi (Florence), as well as at festivals such as Ars Electronica (Linz), DokuFest (Prizren) or Curtocircuíto (Santiago de Compostela).

Among the numerous grants and awards he has received are the Pixel, Bytes + Film production grant (Austrian Ministry of Culture) or the Murphy and Cadogan Contemporary Art Prize (Murphy and Cadogan Foundation). Enar has given talks and conferences at institutions such as the University of California (Berkeley) or the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, and workshops at La Térmica (Málaga) or Plataforma Laboratorio de Arte, Ciencia y Tecnología (Bogotá). She is also the founder of the Bay Area Online Exhibitions Archive, a member of the art and science project SEEC Photography, as well as the artistic association Golden Pixel Cooperative.
