Nicolás Consuegra studied at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogota. He holds a master’s degree in Arts with emphasis on interdisciplinary processes and sculpture from Pratt Institute in New York. He is also co-founder and member of the editorial board of Asterisco Magazine (a Colombian artistic publication).
Consuegra works in photography, sculpture, video, and installation to explore the contradictions of modern visual culture. Through various methodologies and supports, he proposed the space as a playful terrain to be explored and discovered. Central to his work is architecture; the appropriation of traditional techniques to extrapolate to simple modular buildings, linked to modernism; the unfinished; and the tension between absence and presence, a negotiation between what should be included and what is removed.
Consuegra participated in the 41st, 42nd and 43rd National Artists Salon in Medellin, Colombia, and in the exhibition “WATERWEAVERS: The River in Contemporary Colombian Visual and Material Culture,” Bard Graduate Center, New York, 2014.
