Juanjosé Rivas (México. 1976)

Visual/sound artist specialized in electronic media; he employs different techniques in order to make a speech from the translation, error, obstruction, and the interference inside artistic languages. He tries to define the impossible, to reveal the hidden, to articulate the unspeakable, and to evidence the truth as an instituted lie. These are some of the conceptual approaches he uses in his work.
