Daniel Steegmann Mangrané’s work displays a strong concern with the existence and features of concrete objects, often employing dematerialized constructions–sculptures that exist neither here nor there–as a way to address issues concerning “objectness.” He has also created several pieces that explore the semiotic structure of the projection–lacking the narrative of a picture, the projections hover between drawings, abstract structural cinema, and sculpture. Mangrané’s works articulate a sense of space and time, building up a structure as the constellation of elements that enter into action. He has had solo exhibitions at CRAC Alsace in Altkirch, Mendes Wood DM in Sao Paulo, House France Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, Halfhouse in Barcelona, Centro Cultural Sergio Port in Rio de Janeiro and Fundació La Caixa in Barcelona. His work has been featured in group exhibitions at the New Museum in New York, the Renaissance Society in Chicago, Experimental Museo El Eco in Mexico City, Rongwrong in Amsterdam, GalerieKoraAlberg in Antwerp, and Santiago de Chile’s Contemporary Art Museum.
