war, surveillance and the manipulation of information. His work manifests the

Contemporary Art, Mexico City), Museo de Bellas Artes (Buenos Aires), Haus Der
Kulturen Der Welt (Berlin), Museo Reina Sofía (Madrid), Museum of Fine Arts

At the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK will be shown, curated by Jessica Berlanga Taylor for Fundacion Alumnos47, the sound performance and aftermath installation Círculos
Concéntricos [Concentric Circles]. Enrique Ježik scrapes a series of circles on a large
piece of metal, surrounded by metal cutting machines, reminiscent of war strategies
practiced in fortifications around Antwerp, Belgium. The repetitive actions
Ježik undertakes, provoke rhythms, sounds and drawings.
Curated by Jessica
