Oswaldo Macia (b. 1960, Cartagena, Colombia) is an artist based in London. Macia describes his modus operandi in the following statement:

 

  “My work seeks to question assumptions about knowledge and perception. The ways in which we attempt to understand our place in the world is structured through conventions and expectations that often overwhelm our own direct perception of what surrounds us. Throughout my sound-sculptures, smell-sculptures, videos and installations, I aim to create encounters that initiate and reflect upon multiple relationships with what-is-believed-to-be-reality. My work sets out to complicate what-we-think-we-know by offering counter-perceptions in proposals to look harder, listen more acutely, and pay attention to the senses in order to think deeper about the structures of knowledge we rely on to construct that which is taken for knowledge.” – OM
