Gabriel Sierra creates sculptural interruptions within the coherence of built environments, exploring their physical forms as well as the psychic conditions they produce. Formally trained in architecture and design at the Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano in Bogotá, Colombia, where he now lives and works, Sierra has participated in important group exhibitions, including The Ungovernables, the 2nd New Museum Triennial (New York, 2012), the 12th Istanbul Biennial (2011), and the 11th Biennale de Lyon (2011). He has created site-specific work for the Kadist Art Foundation (San Francisco, 2012) and the Aspen Art Museum (2012).
