Charly Nijensohn
(Buenos Aires, 1966)

Self-taught photographer and video artist. He creates his images in remote and desolate landscapes. In 1997 he was granted a scholarship by Fundacion Antorchas to develop “Un acto de intensidad” (An act of intensity) in Salinas Grandes, Jujuy. In 2002 he received the Konex Platinum Award for his professional achievement. In that same year he settled in Berlin and represented Argentina at the 50th Venice Biennale (2003). In 2006 Nijensohn travelled to Greenland, invited by the Uppernavik Museum, to create his work “Después del Final - The polar project” (Beyond the End – The polar project). He made “El naufragio de los hombres” (The Wreck of Men) at Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia (2008), and "Dead Forest" the following year in the Amazon region. Nijensohn participated in several exhibitions and biennials, such as: Whitechapel, London (2010), Singapore Biennale (2008), Triennale of Contemporary Art, Prague (2008), Biennial of the End of the World (2007), Mercosul Biennial (2001), Valencia Biennial (2001), amongst others. He currently lives and works in Berlin.
