Niño de Elche & Pedro G. Romero (Spain)

Chau Chak Wing Museum at the University of Sydney

Commissioned by the Biennale of Sydney and Center for Art, Research and Alliances (CARA) and with assistance from Accion Cultural Española.

Niño de Elche and Pedro G. Romero are Spanish artists whose collaborations examine and reframe the traditional forms of flamenco music. Trained as a cantaor (flamenco singer), Niño de Elche pushes the boundaries of the art form by incorporating spoken word, electronic music, and multimedia elements into his performances. Romero is an accomplished visual artist and filmmaker who has collaborated extensively with Niño de Elche. He creates immersive and thought-provoking audiovisual experiences that explore themes of identity, culture, and societal norms. Taking inspiration from a variety of cultural contexts, together they create a flamenco that is both familiar and inverted, signifying the world seen from an alternative perspective.
