Info

Adrián Villar Rojas was born in Rosario, Argentina, in 1980.

Adrián Villar Rojas employs varied resources such as drawing, sculpture, craft, music, fictionalized science, installation and performance. Working with perceptions of time and its symbolization in human culture, his production exists in a temporal, unreal dimension where men face their obsolescence and ultimate extinction as a way of confronting the field of artistic research to explore how art practices can be re-thought.

Among his latest group exhibitions, he participated in  the 2012 Shanghai Biennial, China; dOCUMENTA(13), Kassel, Germany, and Kabul, Afghanistan, 2012; The 2012 New Museum Triennial, The Ungovernables, New York, USA; the 2011 Istanbul Biennial, Turkey.
