Working from different individual, collaborative and collective platforms Rodríguez’s time-based media pieces, installations and performances are continuously searching for narrative forms that move along the possibilities of reality against the background of radical fiction as tools for thinking about subjectivity, history and social structures.
He started working on video, design, and performance in Ecuador under the video collective “Sapo inc.” while studying fine arts and visual communication at the Catholic University and the Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) in Quito. In 2006 he moved to Germany where he pursued a postgraduate degree at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM) in the fields of video art and experimental film. After finishing his studies Rodríguez has worked as a lecturer at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne, as a video and media-advisor at Cologne’s City House Theater (Schauspielhaus Köln) and currently as picture editor for the German news agency Deutsche Welle. He was a founder member of the dance collective “FREIraum Ensemble” and is currently part of the music duo “Ladyboi.” Rodríguez’s artworks have been presented internationally in several festivals, museums and theater houses such as CalArts, Kunstmuseum Bonn, 104 Paris, KW Berlin, PACT-Zollverein and awarded at the Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen and the Videonale among others.
