Simon Asencio addresses invisible choreographies, often using substitution and aporia to develop, circulate and present his work. Since 2014, he runs an immaterial gallery called Galerie with Adriano Wilfert Jensen. He is also a body for Jessica’s work, a protracted performance of real-life background acting, and works currently as an editor for ‘The Book of Rumours’. He joined the Army of Love in 2016.

Simon's practice has manifested in venues such as De Appel Art Center—Amsterdam, Celje Center for Contemporary Arts—Slovenia, Saal Bienaal—Tallinn, Goldsmiths University of London, Jan Mot—Brussels, Dutch Arts Institute —Eindhoven/Arnhem, Feeelings—Brussels, Bureau des Réalités—Brussels, BAR Project—Barcelona, Immaterial—Mexico City, Black Box Theater—Oslo.
