Fernando García-Dory ´s (b. 1978) work engages specifically with the relationship between culture and nature now, as manifested in multiple contexts, from landscape and the rural, to desires and expectations concerned with identity, through to (global) crisis, utopia and the potential for social change. He studied Fine Arts and Rural Sociology, and now prepairing his PhD on Agroecology. Interested in the harmonic complexity of biological forms and processes, his work addresses connections and cooperation, from microorganisms to social systems, and from traditional art languages such as drawing to collaborative agroecological projects, actions, and cooperatives. He has developed projecs and show his work in diverse places such as Tensta Konsthalle, Van Abbe Museum, Reina Sofia Museum, dOCUMENTA 12 and Biennales of Gwangju, Istambul and Athens.

INLAND1 is a project about an organization started in 2009 by artist Fernando Garcia Dory . During its first stage (2010-2013) and taking Spain as initial case study, INLAND comprised an international conference, artistic production with 22 artists in the same number of villages across the country, and nation wide exhibitions and presentations. It was followed by a period of reflection and evaluation, launching study groups in Netherlands and Spain and series of publications. Today INLAND functions as a collective and works as a para-institution to open space for land-based collaborations, economies and communities-of-practice as a substrate for post-Contemporary Art cultural forms. Appearing in different forms in different countries, whilst dissolving individual agency in the collective, INLAND Europa publishes books, produces shows and makes cheese. It also advises as consultant for the European Union Commission on the use of art for rural development policies, facilitates shepherds movements, and is recovering an abandoned village in an undisclosed location for collective artistic and agricultural production.

Fernando García-Dory was proposed by Jennifer Teets. This fellowship is granted by Tsadik Foundation.
