Daniel Steegmann Mangrané (Barcelona, 1977) is an artist from Barcelona who is resident in Rio de Janeiro.
His body of work includes different formats and is based on subtle, poetic experimentation that questions the relationship between language and the world. His artwork, principally conceptual, shows a marked concern with existence and the specific characteristics of objects, at the same time activating abstract language as a principle to generate thought, and uses the idea of unstable meaning and dematerialized constructions as a way of addressing questions of the “object”.
Recently Steegmann has had exhibitions at CRAC Alsace (2015), A Certain Lack of Coherence in Oporto (2013) and Halfhouse (Barcelona, 2011), and has taken part in group shows such as The Generational Triennial, New Museum (New York, 2015), the 12th Cuenca Biennial (Ecuador, 2014), the 9th Mercosul Biennial (Porto Alegre, 2013) and the 30th São Paulo Biennial (2012).
