Ignacio Gatica Rojas
Technology Residency

Ignacio Gatica’s practice identifies and questions systems of knowledge and structures that configures the urban, historical, and personal experience. Working in between installation, sculpture, video, and text, his work maps out distinct forms of signs and signifiers, making unsuspected connections between them

Born in Chile in 1988, Gatica’s recent investigation into the dissemination of neoliberal ideology considers the parallel processes of economic restructuring that both New York City and Chile concurrently underwent in the mid 1970s. Gatica’s generation is a product of this U.S.-backed experiment, experiencing the burden of its aftershocks, while earning a dual perspective conducive to a critical understanding of this event.
