About the author

Sigismond de Vajay is a protean artist, curator and publisher, Argentinian, Hungarian and Swiss, born in Paris (1972). He worked in Vevey, Barcelona and New York, where he studied at the SVA. Since 2009 he lives in Buenos Aires. His works include installations, drawings, videos, interventions in the public space and sculptures. In 2002 he moved to Barcelona, where he set up with a collective a platform for contemporary art, KBB (Kültur Büro Barcelona). He develops important projects for galleries, museums and institutions in Switzerland, France, Spain, Chile, Argentina, Venezuela, Germany, Slovenia, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Brazil. His work highlights the systems that govern the planet, irregularities and social differences, power and global control. With a disenchanted look, his art oscillates ceaselessly between the human and the machine, the individual and the mass, or even nature and technology. His productions have in common a dystopian aesthetic with which he describes the condition of contemporary societies in the state of ruin. Since 2012 he works with the Xippas Galleries in Paris, Montevideo and Geneva and since 2018 with Aninat Gallery in Chile.
