Ivan Argote was born in Bogota in 1983. He lives and works in Paris. He is represented by Emmanuel Perrotin gallery in Paris, D+T Project in Brussels and Galeria Vermelho in São Paolo.
His work is the result of his questioning of the world, social ties, and history, based on his experience as subject and, sometimes, his personal history. It’s often constructed on a principle of irrationality. The general tone and factuality remain ever ambiguous, while the artist holds up a distorting mirror to the world, highlighting its absurdities.
