In his work, Galan explores the perception of space and objects relating to it, by means of an expanded practice which includes installation, sculpture, photography and video. He borrows geometry to deconstruct codes associated with the ideas of precision and organization, delivering constructions rigorously executed, where the works become material experimentations which interrogate the functions, limits and borders of space as well as the socio-political systems where these are rooted.
