Nico Lillo (*1983, Argentina) is an artist and curator who works with painting, sculptures and digital images.

In his practices he combines materiality and virtuality to reconfigure the format of visual representation.

His interdisciplinary pieces address collective memory and its link with speculative fictions, consumerism and mysticism.


Materiality plays a central role in his works as a way of exploring the processes of identity construction in a world of holograms, data overproduction and environmental crisis.
