Iván Sikic is a conceptual artists who explores social and political structures and conflicts with the use of objects, installation, public activations, video, photography and durational performance.
While his works are highly conceptual and charged with meaning, he uses direct and indirect metaphors in order to draw attention to and question subject matters and points of tensions that exist within both our immediate and our global context. The invitation to an unbiased and paused reflection from simple yet poetically loaded elements is Sikic’s preferred strategy
