Florian Steininger


Teresa Margollesabstracts the subject of terror: she extracts the body into abstract forms which are manifest in fired bricks or in mud, water and blood-soaked cloths. They form a memorial to the victims of the Mexican drug wars and the waves of migration.

Violent death is the central topic in the art of Teresa Margolles. The Mexican artist often uses materials derived from corpses or which have come into contact with them, including human blood or water from the washing of dead bodies. In her pictures, sculptures, installations, performances, videos and photographs she examines the brutality of death within the context of the Mexican drug war, migration and unjust social conditions as well as gender hatred.
