Leo Orta: Sorry Dad in GAK Project Space (M31)

There are those with whom we build a room; we inhabit together a solid void.

Sorry Dad is an exhibition of new work by Leo Orta in GAK Project Space (M31). In Sorry Dad, Leo Orta performs in conversation with the room he built to cure his relationship with his father. The performance and evidence left behind are a part of his larger ongoing project Nostalgie, which speaks to the future, the past and the relation we have with one another.

Leo Orta (born 1993 in Paris, France) is a French, English and Argentinian contemporary artist living and working between Eindhoven and Paris.

Orta grew up within an artistic family, mentored by his parents Lucy and Jorge Orta. His goal is to imagine and create solutions for environmental and social sustainability. He has pursued these interests, by studying graphic design in London and Brussels from 2012 to 2015. In 2016, he moved to the Netherlands to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree at the Design Academy Eindhoven, in the Man and Leisure department.

Orta continues to investigate the world of art and design within a social and ecological context working through interdisciplinary platforms and medias, such as staging performances, collaborating, and creating two-dimensional and three-dimensional responses to raise questions and challenge the viewer.
