Marco Montiel-Soto, as traveller and immigrant, constantly ﬁnds himself moving forward. During these expeditions, the route becomes imaginary and travel time elastic. His work and installations are a creolization of architectural structures, found objects, sounds compositions, videos, photographs, drawings, collages, texts and maps. His work explores the intersections between political and poetic territories, homeland, traditions, economy, archaeology, religion, myths, death, cosmos and chaos.
In 2013 Montiel-Soto participated in the Taller Bloc residency program in Santiago de Chile, and in 2015 participated in Lamosa Permanencias residency program in Cuenca, Ecuador. His work is part of public and private collections, including: Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, California; Maczul (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo del Zulia), Maracaibo; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Caracas; Instituto Italo Latino Americano, Rome and Yarat, Baku.
