Daniel Steegmann Mangrané

Daniel Steegmann Mangrané (b. 1977) is a Spanish artist that lives and works between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Steegmann’s practice covers various media and oscillates between subtle, poetic but however raw experimentations that question the relationship between language and world


His practice covers various media and oscillates between subtle, poetic but however crude experimentations that question the relationship between world and language. Although mainly conceptually informed, his installations engage the imagination of the spectator and display a strong concern with the existence and features of concrete objects: Steegmann activates the abstract language as a thought-generating principle and articulating unstable meaning. The works thus articulate a sense of space and time, building up a structure as the constellation of elements enter into play.

Selected solo exhibitions include: “Another point in the same line and three points that don´t belong to the same line”, Múrias Centeno, Lisboa, Portugal (2015); “Spiral Forest (Kingdom of all the animals and all the beasts is my name)”, Esther Schipper, Berlin, Germany (2015); “Animal que no existeix”, CRAC Alsace, Altkirch, France (2015); “Fólego”, Proyectos Monclova, Mexico City, Mexico (2014); “Phasmides”, Mendes Wood, São Paulo, Brazil (2013); “/ (- “, Galeria Nuno Centeno, Porto, Portugal (2013); “A Certain Lack of Coherence”, Porto, Portugal (2013)
