Daniel Greenfield-Campoverde
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: I grew up between Caracas and New York. From a very early age, I remember being called the ‘gringo’ whilst in Venezuela and conversely, the ‘venezu-alien’ when visiting the United States. This compartmentalized upbringing is where my work situates itself on this cultural divide. Trained as an architect, I am inspired by the social histories architecture can imbue to personal experience, geographical memory and collective histories. Through drawing and sculpture, I attempt to recreate ideas about home and belonging through fictive landscapes and imagined spaces. My Venezuelan, American, Jewish and Queer identities are in question and my work is a way to map and navigate this complex cultural terrain. Grandson to Eastern European Nazi refugees, I am interested in defining these three queries: How do we trace diaspora? How do we measure displacement? and, How do we define belonging?
