Enrique Ježik

Enrique Ježik (Cordoba, Argentina, 1961) has lived and worked in Mexico City since 1990. Ježik’s work has focused on the analysis of violence from a variety of points of view and strategies. Power, urban violence and war, the use of weapons and surveillance, and the manipulation of information by mass media are addressed and reflected upon. He has incorporated destructive actions as a way to expose the violent processes that characterize our era, utilizing arms and heavy machinery, among other media, such as prosthetic tools developed by man to extend his power beyond the body. His work has been shown in venues such as Bienal de São Paulo; Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts; Museo Universitario Arte Contemporaneo, Museo Carrillo Gil, Museo de Arte Moderno (Mexico City); Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Centro Cultural Recoleta (Buenos Aires); MeetFactory (Prague); Le Confort Moderne (Poitiers); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid); Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin); Musée des Beaux Arts (Montreal); and M'ARS Gallery (Moscow), among others.
