Daniel Jacoby (1985; Lima, Peru) is a visual artist and filmmaker. His interest in the human condition has lead him to eccentric characters, places and stories, which he strives to approach from inventively tangential points of view. With a recurring use of abstraction, the result tends to be a personal and subjective exploration of topics like outsiderness, belonging, loneliness, friendship, desire and spirituality. His films have won awards at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Videoex, Filmadrid, Curtocircuito and Lima Independiente, and have been screened at MoMA Doc Fortnight, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Les Rencontres Internationales, e-flux Screening Room, EMAF, Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen, Kasseler Dokfest, MIEFF, 25 FPS Zagreb and Jeonju IFF. His work has also been part of exhibitions at EYE Filmmuseum (Amsterdam), Fundació Joan Miró (Barcelona), The Banff Centre (Alberta), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Delfina Foundation (London), Casino Luxembourg (Luxembourg) and Amsterdam Museum (Amsterdam).
