Santiago Sierra (Spain, 1966) is a contemporary artist known for using installation, performance and photography as an artistic medium. His work is characterized by situations where survival is a fundamental element. Sierra translates this into an artistic practice that investigates inhuman aspects of the economic system, the mechanisms of corruption and the labor exploitation of the individual. He links diverse references with reality in an exploration of a world articulated by critical discourse in the art world and its agents.
In the 1990s, his projects were known for establishing systems of negotiation with third parties to carry out actions that generally occupy a public space to demonstrate against the materialistic procedures related to the systemic violence of capitalism and the working conditions it generates. This body of work has questioned the function of institutional structures, control over the public space, the emergence of informal architectures in the urban landscape associated with forms of survival, and the conditions of disuse and disposal not only from the point of view of the material but also as a reflection of social contrasts.
