Andrew de Freitas was born in 1986 in Auckland, New Zealand, and educated in fine arts and philosophy at The University of Auckland, The University of Toronto, and the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinéma in Montréal. His practice has its base in filmmaking, photography and sculptural / audiovisual production. Working to identify and extract the strangeness embedded in human experience of the everyday, de Freitas rearranges narrative information surrounding existing situations and events so that our common perception of otherwise familiar objects and images is altered and challenged. To this end, he is constantly renegotiating formal bounds and drawing from established traditions in order to yield new messages and call attention to the inherent, hidden ones. He has presented works in diverse exhibition and screening contexts internationally.
