In his practice, Nicolás Grum explores ideas around hierarchy, domination and structures of power through video works, performance and sculpture. In his art, he challenges social systems and institutions to create alternate historical narrative, and confront “truths” established by authoritative bodies or figures to deconstruct our understanding of today’s society. Grum perceives art as a collaborative practice; he works with different communities and other artists.
Nicolás Grum has exhibited work at Beijing 798 Biennale; transmediale, Berlin; and LOOP Barcelona, among others.
