ARTIST BOOK

serial of 149 pieces 

Mixed media

dimensions: 100 books: 23 x 17 x 3 cm  (9 x 6.6 x 1.2 in) / 49 books in variable formats


2010 - 2022



™ consists of 149 books, content includes original work and register of different exercises carried out for 12 years, establishing with totality of the series, the progress and hesitations in my practice, or rather, in the practice of 

a nonprofessional artist, now an “emerging-professional one” and the interest in the use of different mediums through an individual intervention of each book. 100 books have been produced in a standard book format, while the other 49 adopted characteristics which allowed to expand the book format and reformulate our relationship with the object, without completely diluting the discourse of its original configuration. 



As a genealogy archive documented through a decade, the book series contains diverse intersections between the identity of a creator originally from Mexico City and his context. A period in which Mexico has tried to consummate its democratic transition.  A country in which violence has reached its highest level, a state of deep iniquity and in which it is still very difficult to live as an artist, but at the same time this last decade has also seen Mexican society and its institutions (including those of art) with a deep desire to advance, not only to the consolidation of democratic behaviors, but to a genuine social equity. So, that is how I remember my everyday life and it is what can be seen in ™.

The proposal aims to carry out a cross-sectional and demi-historical review of how a book is understood and what 

are the possible variations in its conceptualization to comprehend it beyond its dimension as an object, as well as an invitation to “read the other”, someone from abroad who may be alien or perhaps with whom the reader/observer may have some coincidences.
