About the artist

1963, Donostia-San Sebástian, Spain. Lives in Paris, France.

The work of Juan Pérez Agirregoikoa addresses the ability of visual and writtten language to interpelate those coming in contact with it, in an attempt to question, ironically, what kind of subjects we are or are allowed to be. His drawings, tapestries and films have been exhibited in solo shows at, among others, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (2010), Madrid, Spain; Carreras Mugica Gallery (2008), Bilbao, Spain; M HKA (2008), Antwerp, Belgium; and group exhibitions at Museo San Telmo (2013), San Sebastián, Spain; Panorama da Arte Brasileira (2009), São Paulo, Brazil; or the Biennale de Lyon (2007), Lyon, France.
