Alejandra Avilés

Long term residency

May 2016 - 2018


Alejandra Avilés, Cajeme (México) 1989

In her projects she takes as a starting point the narratives derived from the migration of her family to work in the Revolución Verde in Sonora, the Mexican state from which she originates. During the first half of the twentieth century hectares of vegetation were converted to monoculture fields. It is from this process that she reflects on concepts such as poison and land, dismantling and reproduction, the uniform and the singular. She uses materials, interventions, installations and drawings to explain the nuances that arise from the ideals of progress, revolution and natural abundance.
