Oscar Santillan (Ecuador, 1980) is a visual artist living and working in the Netherlands and Ecuador. His practice seeks to go beyond the boundaries of western reality, which, according to Santillan, is based on binary oppositions — good/ bad, black/white, man/woman, truth/ lies. These categories dissolve in his work, opening up a larger sense of what is achievable. Santillan speaks of a territory that transcends the limits of possibility: what happened, what may have happened, and what is presented are equivalent terms.
