Alexandre Arrechea

  • Alexandre Arrechea was born in 1970 in Trinidad, Cuba, and graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana in 1994. In the early 1990s he was known as a member of the art collective Los Carpinteros, which he left in 2003 in order to pursue his career as a solo artist.  Since then, his works have often explored the growing prominence of surveillance systems in contemporary society and the fragility, loss of privacy, and disempowerment that result from this obsession with control. Recently, Arrechea’s interest in the limits of the artwork itself has led to his creation of interdisciplinary works in public spaces.
