The artistic practice of Agustín Ortiz Herrera investigates the place of confluence between moving image and performance. His work explores the semantic possibilities of non-linear video installations and uses this medium to deal critically with questions such as interseccionality, implicit violence in power relations, contradictions of economic organization systems and paradoxes which raises the representation of the memory. Their strategies include the challenge of the hierarchies and the automatic positions established between spectators and audiovisuals, as well as the subversion of the expectations by means of the agitation of the interfaces and the provocation of an active role in the spectator.
Graduate in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona, he studied cinema at New School University in New York. After a period as a fiction scriptwriter, he returned to artistic production after joining the Master's in Fine Arts program at the Konstfack Stockholm school. He has exhibited his work in several galleries in Uppsala, Tromsø, Barcelona, Berlin and Stockholm. He also attended the Örebro biennial Open Art in 2015 and was part of several collective exhibitions in places such as the Centrum för Fotografi, Supermarket Art Fair, Galeri Stockholm Platform, Uppsala Konstmuseet and Konsthall C. He was recently selected to participate at the Nordic Studio Residence organized by Rejmyre ArtLab. He received the Nils Johan Sjöstedts Prize in 2016. In Barcelona he collaborated with The Green Parrot at the curator of the Opavivará and An Ocean Feeling organized by the Antoni Tàpies Foundation.
