Nicolás Lamas

Nicolás Lamas (b. 1980, Peru) lives and works in Belgium. His work derives from the interest and mistrust in constructed perceptions, which are considered to belong to a “natural order” and constantly build our notion of truth through a systematized knowledge. Through different guidelines, Lamas analyzes the relationship established between knowledge and power, and how that bond ideologically determines our perception and interpretation of, and interaction with our environment. Nicolás Lamas’ selected solo exhibitions include Reference points, Meessen De Clercq, Brussels, Belgium (2013); Espacio de contingencia NNM, Live broadcast residence-Act #5, Lima, Peru (2012) and Desencuadre y superficie, Lima, Peru (2011). He has also participated in group exhibitions including among others, Saint Jerome, Messeen De Clercq, Brussels, Belgium (2014); Proyector13, International Videoart Festival, Madrid, Spain (2013); La extención del soporte, Centro de la Imagen, Lima, Peru (2013); Bahuja Sinene, Centro de la Imagen, Lima, Peru (2013); Sound In, Matadero, Madrid, Spain (2013); Parc, International Contemporary Art Fair, Lima, Peru (2013) and Belfast Photo Festival Belfast, UK (2013).
