All Things Living, All Things Dead

These projects are inscribed in places that are equally crossed by social, political, economical, geological, and biological disputes. Shaped by a spirit of research, they may entail the production of installations, images, and texts. These products function as components of a knowledge system, which opens a space beyond the idea of the artwork as final result.

All Things Living, All Things Dead: Lake Texcoco

All Things Living, All Things Dead: Lake Texcoco is set on the basin of Lake Texcoco, a lake that was violently desiccated by colonial settlers and currently exists as a territory at the margins of Mexico City. Ever since its desiccation, this lake has been transformed in multiple ways. This project accounts for the complex condition of this place, through two exercises of critical appropriation. The encyclopedia and the museum, traditionally conceived as containers of absolute knowledge, account for the singularities, fragments, and narratives of a place that has been forcefully destabilized.
