Juan Gugger is a visual artist whose works offer a subjective experience of an interconnected global existence. His artistic practice is more concerned with sculpture and architecture. His works transcribe the artist’s relationship with the spaces in which he moves during his travels. He leads the viewer to delve into the unconscious aspects of architectural and urban space. It also deals with the relationship to consumer society, to economic and social responsibility, as well as the fate of materials in an ecological society.
