LUIS SANZ


"I seek to generate interferences in the environment as an attempt to destroy social subjectivity."

Luis Sanz (Ilo, PE) is an installation artist and musician living in Switzerland. Sanz’s installation and performance works combine shouts, body, noise and silence, audio visual instruments, feedback system, free improvisation, errors, synesthetic experiences and randomness. Sanz's works seek to open a dimension where to interact, generate a new space and disrupt automating perception.
