Miguel Mitlag

Argentinian, b. 1969

Biography

Miguel Mitlag’s academic training in filmmaking can be seen in his interest in constructing fictional spaces. Mitlag—who once said that he “likes art not to be declamatory” and “generate its own rules”—builds scenes either as installations, or as large-scale tableaus that he photographs. His work typically features everyday objects, but presents them in combinations and arrangements that make them look unfamiliar or abstract. Mitlag has written about the importance of Richard Prince’s work in his own practice, and is also influenced by fellow Argentinean artists Fabian Burgos, Victor Grippo, and Alberto Goldstein.
