Iván Sikic (b. 1983, Lima, Peru) makes work about issues he believes to be unsustainable in our society: how violence affects women, the destruction of our natural resources for the sake of greed, mass consumerism, social inequalities and the unjust treatment of the disenfranchised and what it means to be an immigrant. He responds to these themes through durational performance, installation, public intervention, sculpture, and photography.
His work has been shown at The 8th Floor (New York), Smack Mellon (Brooklyn), Km 0.2 (Lima and Mexico City), Luis Adelantado (Bogotá, Madrid, and Valencia) amongst others and he has attended residencies in the USA, Europe, Latin America and Australia. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
