Mexico City, Mexico. 1989
Four statements about my work.
My work grows from subjects as the uncanny, violence, death or memory; products of the syncretism of my country. Coming from a “mestizo” (mixed-race) country, which itself is an unfinished identity,
Why to be self-collapsing and contradictory? Because it’s this liminal place where I can reach a sensorial response. I search a form that can propose other shapes of shelter.
My work as an artist exists on the side of an answer for a question that has not been asked, a space where I feel confused and try to improvise whenever is possible.
I don’t to yearn for a final explanation or self-consciousness. Instead, this unfinished quality gives me more questions and ambivalent answers. If something is too clear it doesn’t really attract me anymore.
