Eduardo Sarabia
American, b. 1976
Follow

In work that blurs fact and fiction, Eduardo Sarabia explores the fraught U.S.-Mexican border zone, Mexican cultural stereotypes, and his own identity as a Mexican-American. Born in L.A. to Mexican immigrants, he relocated to his parents’ native country, and has been based in Guadalajara since 2003. He infuses his sculpture, painting, installations, actions, and participatory events with references to the traditional Mexican folklore that influences him, as well as to such headline-grabbing issues as drug violence, contraband, and other illegal activities plaguing the border region. Dark humor and a sense of absurdity characterize his work, which has been included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial and the 51st Venice Biennale. Among Sarabia’s best-known projects is his series of ceramic vessels made to mimic those popular with tourists in Mexico, but decorated with hand-painted pin-up girls, guns, and drug-trade iconography.
