Ignacio Gatica (born 1988, Santiago, Chile) works in installation, sculpture, video, and text to question the systems of knowledge that configure personal experience in the urban and historical context. Concerned from an analytical standpoint with the experience of urban living, Gatica’s work modifies the elements that construct these socio-political spaces, merging data, materials, and theoretical frameworks to reconfigure particular views, making unexpected connections. Gatica received his BFA at Finis Terrae University in Santiago, Chile, and has exhibited internationally at Interstate Projects, New York (2019); Fundación Marso, Mexico City (2019); Jeffrey Deitch, New York (2018); Museo del Barrio, New York (2018); Gallería Die Ecke, Santiago (2017, 2014); Fondation Hippocrène, Paris (2017); Casa Nova Arte e Cultura Contemporânea, Sao Paulo (2016); among others. Gatica currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, USA.
