In his time-based media pieces, installations and performances Rodríguez is continuously searching for narrative forms that move along the (de)construction of identities and human structures that deal with possibilities of life against the background of radical fiction. 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 has also co-founded the media platform “Gonzo Echo Space Agency “ and the dance collective “FREIraum Ensemble.” 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.
