La pratica di  Andrea Samory si concentra sulla relazione tra materia biologica e lo stereotipico concetto di natura.

La sua ricerca si riferisce a una realtà parallela in cui gli esseri sono contemporaneamente virtuali e reali, vivi e morti, naturali e artificiali, biologici e minerali. Immagini familiari e confortanti vengono sistematicamente alienate dal proprio idealizzato contesto, creando una natura artificiale terrificante, sconcertante, corrotta. 

Le molteplici tecniche utilizzate combinano polimeri sintetici industriali con piante viventi, materiali cinematografici SFX con terra e pietra, render digitali con realtà stampate in 3D.

Andrea Samory’s practice is focused on the relationship between biological matter and the stereotypical concept of nature.

His artistic research refers to a parallel reality where beings are both virtual and real, dead and alive, natural and artificial, biological and mineral. Familiar and conforting images are systematically alienated from their idealized context, creating a terrifying, uncanny, corrupt artificial nature.

His various material techniques combine synthetic industrial-grade compounds with living plants, cinema SFX materials with soil and stone, CG graphics with 3d printed pieces of reality.
