Galeote has been in residence at ArtCenter/South Florida since mid-March as part of an international artist exchange program with Centro de Arte Alcobendas located in the northern part of the Community of Madrid in Spain. His photographic practice searches to explore possible realities from a constructed image, combining the idea of installation and representation, through compositions made in a studio. Galeote works with different found objects presented as sculpture, creating new planes in the perception of the everyday.
