Santander, Spain, 1975.

Jorge Yeregui is a visual artist, PhD in Architecture and professor at the University of Malaga. He works between Malaga and Seville (Spain).

His work investigates the construction of the landscape and the transformation of the territory. The relationship between architecture and environment or the influence of markets on urban growth are some of his topics of interest. His most recent works take the form of complex visual essays combining texts, videos and installations. Jorge Yeregui explores this way of constructing and representing the landscape, proposing a reflection on perception and the way in which we construct knowledge of our surroundings. His projects transcend the aesthetics of the landscape and analyze the confluence of natural, cultural and social factors that condition it.
