Abstract

Teresa Margolles (Culiacán, 1963) is a Mexican artist living and working between Mexico City and Madrid. Particularly prone to crude realism, her works bear witness to the complexities of contemporary society, weakened by an alarming violence that is tearing the world — and especially Mexico — into pieces. Winner of the 2012 Prince Claus Award, Teresa Margolles has represented Mexico at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009, and her works have been shown in several international museums, institutions and foundations.
Margolles’ 14 installations displayed at PAC feature a minimalistic, yet high-impact style, which is almost overbearing from a conceptual perspective. They explore thorny issues such as death, social injustice, gender hate, marginalisation and corruption, generating a constant tension between horror and beauty.
