The title of the exhibition "Nocturnos" (nocturnal or night in Spanish) is inspired by the night sky. Gonzalo Reyes Araos questions how contemporary media has conditioned and redefined the connection with nature and how people currently perceive the world. Gonzalo Reyes Araos works in a multidisciplinary approach and focuses his practice on contemporary forms of communication that have conditioned and redefined human relationships.

"My numerous trips to the Chilean Atacama Desert in the last two years have been an immense source of inspiration. I observed and learned about Andean culture, studied its cosmology, and connected with nature. In ancient times, humanity relied on their natural environment to survive and progress as a society. They recognized themselves as part of this ecosystem, or at least accepted that it was the source of all their benefits. I wonder to what degree we are realizing ourselves in a "natural ecosystem" today. To what extent will sunlight and the seasons continue to condition our biological system?" said Gonzalo Reyes Araos.

Gonzalo Reyes Araos (b. 1980) studied at the School of Art in Valparaíso, Chile. He has been awarded the VI Juan Francisco Gonzales Prize (Chile), the II Corral y su bahia painting prize (Chile), the Art residency grant at Seoul Art Space Geumchon / Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture (KR), was shortlisted for the Losito Art Prize 2015 (Germany), received the H Residency, Calama (Chile) in 2020 and the Research Stipend for Visual Arts of the Berlin Senate, Berlin (Germany) in 2021.
