About the artist
Sergio Vega’s artistic project involves a range of media, including text, photographs, videos, sculpture-objects, dioramas, scale models and installations. His complex approach examines historical and contemporary systems of representation in order to highlight the modus operandi of colonialistic ideologies in the formation of culture and the creation of social conditions. Vega mischieveously blends theory, empirical experiences and an incisive critique of power and society I order to endlessly reconsider and explore a paradise in the field of art in which sensory stimulation and critical discourse are brought together.
Sergio Vega has participated in numerous international exhibitions including The 51st Biennale di Venezia, Italy; The 5th Biennal de Lyon, France; Soonsbeek 9, Arnhem, The Netherlands; The 5th Gwangju Biennal, Gwangju, South Korea; The 1st Yokohama Triennale Yokohama, Japan; and The second Johannesburg Biennale, South Africa. In june of 2006 he presented “Crocodilian Fantasies” at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, his first solo exhibit at a European museum and “Tropicalounge” a solo show as part of the “Momentum” series at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston.
