Enrique Ježik

Born in 1961, Córdoba, Argentina
Lives and works in Mexico City

Enrique Ježik’s work has focused on 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 in his work. 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, as prosthetic tools developed by man to extend his power beyond the body.
His work on surveillance and manipulation of information has led him to utilize images of recent wars taken from intelligence sources as a kind of media archeology, integrating them to installations in which direct reference to a specific conflict serves as point of departure for new reflections.
