Description

Violence and the dead are major thematics in the sociopolitical art of Teresa Margolles. Born in Culiacán, Mexico, Margolles unfalteringly exposes the social causes and consequences of the endemic violence that ravages her country: violent deaths from the drug trade, exclusions, feminicides, and social injustice. Many of her works consist of substances or objects that have been in close contact to violent crimes and dead bodies, such as water with which corpses have been cleaned, blood-soaked earth, or fabric drenched in body fluids. This monograph brings together works from the past decade, along with pieces that have never been shown before, including sculptural and photographic installations, performative interventions and videos. Spare, yet powerfully moving, Margolles’s work reaches out and brings the viewer into the world of those whose lives have been made invisible. In English and French.
