Snyder Moreno Martín is interested in the transformative power of material, based on the study of natural elements. By way of various mediums such as installation, performance, drawing, video and writing, he develops a practice that qualifies as "environmental", embracing entropic transformations and even the potential of material erasure. His recent research has led him to investigate the spiritual, social and historical meaning of air currents and flow of rivers, with a steady concern for anchoring interventions in specific sites. Moreno Martín also develops curatorial and educational projects conceived in line with his artistic projects, so as to integrate exchanges with the public in the creation of his works.
Snyder Moreno Martín's residency at the Darling Foundry is made possible thanks to the support of the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec and the Ministry of Culture in Colombia.
Snyder Moreno Martín holds a degree in visual arts from the National University of Colombia. He has taken part in a number of workshops on art education and curating in Colombia and Brazil. His work is regularly shown in Bogotá where he lives and works. In 2017, Moreno Martín was the recipient of artist residencies at Lazos Interdisciplinarios a Lado del HAramara (LILHA) in San Francisco (Mexico) and the Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP) in São Paulo (Brazil). As part of his curatorial practice, Moreno Martín has participated in the Curatorial Intensive organized by the Independent Curators International (ICI) in 2015 in Bogotà.
