In the last two decades Enrique Ježik (Cordoba, Argentina, 1961) has deployed a complex work of exploring the structures and devices of power, surveillance, repression, control and violence, from within the polymorphic practice of contemporary sculpture. For this artist, sculpture is a way of thinking power and violence as a stubborn drive on body matter. His performances, videos, and specific interventions that involve tactics—ranging from the use of bullets to Braille writing—testify to a historical period where the means of destruction and control technologies create the spaces, metaphors, devices and paths of politics.
