Eduardo Sarabia

2014 Instituto Cultural Cabañas,  Guadalajara.
and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo
de Oaxaca, Oax. México.

This exhibition presents over a decade of production where Sarabia develops his works through a research process carried out in long journeys in which he collects  stories, histories and mythologies from numerous communities, revealing how our understanding of the world is constructed by means of facts and fabrications, by means so much of reality as of fantasy. Being a narrator, he groups his pieces, at times in apparently spontaneous arrangements, or in careful compositions of interrelationships that suggest reflection and the universe of kitsch.  He also speaks about dreams, about spirits, shamans; he paints colors on the faces of beautiful women, he searches for Pancho Villa’s treasure, he touches on the ancient pre- Hispanic myths, and confronts all of this with hard materialism, with the terrible economic forces that shape societies. Eduardo’s work  is the result of deep reflection and wide research, and has been show in great museums. For these reasons this 10-year work compilation is more than anything, a homage to one of the most important young artists in Mexico.
