Andrew de Freitas

Andrew de Freitas is an artist filmmaker whose projects are directed towards identifying and extracting the peculiarities embedded in everyday experience. He was educated in fine arts and philosophy in New Zealand and Canada, and is currently a student of Simon Starling and Peter Fischli at the Staatliche Hochschule fur Bildende Kunste Stadelschule in Frankfurt am Main. Filmmaking is at the center of a practice that integrates image production with writing and material construction – permitting the situations surrounding production to shape and direct the course of outcomes. In 2013, he has screened and exhibited works in the Festival de Arte Contemporanea Sesc_Videobrasil in Sao Paulo; at the Goethe Institut, Hanoi and Galerie Quynh in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; District Kunst- und Kulturforderung Berlin; Solalanotte, Frankfurt am Main; and Ygrec, Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Paris-Cergy.
