Teresa Margolles

En la Herida

Violent death is the central topic in the work of Mexican artist Teresa Margolles. Frequently using material derived from corpses or that has come into contact with them, including human blood or water from the washing of dead bodies, she examines through pictures, sculptures, installations, performances, videos, and photographs the brutality of death within the context of violence, unjust social conditions, and gender hatred. Rendering the body into abstract forms that are manifest in fired bricks or in mud, water, and blood-soaked cloths, she creates an abstraction from terror itself. Together, her works form a memorial to the victims of the drug wars and the waves of migration.
