IVÁN ARGOTE

Born in 1983 in Bogotá (CO)

Lives and works in Paris (FR)

Iván Argote was raised in a politically committed family having experienced the Colombian riots of the 70s and 80s. This commitment he witnessed in his youth strongly influences his work: protestation, civil disobedience, resistance are at the core of his practice. Iván Argote’s projects explore the relationship between history, politics and the construction of our own subjectivities. His films, sculptures, collages, and public space installations tend to raise questions about how we relate to others, to the state, to heritage and traditions. His artworks are critical, sometimes anti-establishment, and deal with the idea of bringing affects to the politics, and politics to the affects in a strong and tender tone. Iván Argote’s work does not lack of humour; by using absurd or worrying situations, the artist tries to make sense. Painted, moulded, engraved or sprayed, words are running on his artworks, often presented as architectural pieces. The use of concrete gives him a freedom of surfaces and shapes needed to create structures that are both monumental and poetical.
