Javier Téllez's work focuses on the invisible situations of marginalized communities. He has created installations, film and videos all across the globe, in cities including London, Lima, Tokyo, Berlin, Sydney, Lisbon, Mexico City and New York. Often developed in collaboration with people with disabilities or mental illnesses, his projects question notions of the pathological and the normal that are related to the social and political context of the locations. Combining different approaches to filmmaking, Téllez opens dialogues that provide fresh interpretations of classical myths, private and collective memories, and historical references.
