Enrique Ježik oeuvre hinges on conceptual premises derived from his investigation of institutionalised forms of violence. Issues such as migration, surveillance security, the rationalisation and representation of war, appear as central subjects and core concerns. To tackle them he deploys different strategies and tools, from drawing to video, from sculptural installations to action performances.

Born in Cordoba, Argentina, in 1961, he moved to Mexico City 1990, where he currently lives and works. His work has been internationally exhibited including Museo Universitario de Ciencias y Artes, Mexico City; Ex Teresa Arte Actual, Mexico City; MACO-Museum of Contemporary Art, Oaxaca, Mexico; Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Bienal do Mercosul, Porto Alegre, Brazil; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, Germany; Le Confort Moderne, Poitiers, France; M’ARS Centre of Contemporary Art, Moscow, Russia; Banff Centre for the Arts, Banff, Canada; Break 2.4 Art Festival, Ljubljana, Slovenia; InSite 94, San Diego (USA)-Tijuana (MX); Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal, Canada
