about the artist
Ronald Patrick (CL), www.ronaldpatrick.com
Ronald Patrick (1979) is a Chilean artist based in Berlin working with documentary still photography and field recordings to create immersive audio-visual installations. For the past fifteen years his work has brought him to some of the world’s most remote corners, allowing him to connect with cultures and peoples who live at the borders of society and giving him a tool with which to share their stories.
Ronald began his journey with photography after studies in Madrid. Beyond his own personal experience on the field, it was his connection to fellow photographers and artists, mentors like Luis Poirot (CL) and workshops with Maggie Steber (US), Fernanda Larraín (CL) and Pep Bonet (ES), that have deeply marked his approach to the medium.
His work has been exhibited in galleries and photography festivals in Germany, United States, England, Canada, Spain, Georgia, Japan, Cambodia, New Zealand and Chile. His photographs have also been published by international media, including The New York Times, Time Magazine, Stern, BBC, Forbes, El País Semanal, Politico, Monocle, Vice, The Guardian, NPR, Financial Times, Tagesspiegel, World Photography Organization, The Wall Street Journal amongst others.

electronics, field recordings
Marcos Meza (August 1984) is a Berlin-based Chilean pianist and composer. His work encompasses compositions that explore impressionist and new-classical sonorities combined with elements of ambient music.
His concerts showcase the intimacy with which he plays the piano, and the ability to take the audience on a contemplative journey through Chile's landscapes, painting cinematographic scenes of folkloric imagery.
On this occasion, Marcos Meza will accompany Ronald Patrick's work with an original soundtrack inspired by life in the mountains, in very remote places. This work has been inspired by the silence, the wind, the heights, the sky, the communities and their sacred traditions.
Through an electronic set and a quadraphonic sound system, Marcos Meza performs an evocative sound design, which also includes compositions from his more electronic albums.
