Marcos Ramírez ERRE
Mexican-American, b. 1961
Follow

Born in Mexico and resident in the U.S., Marcos Ramírez ERRE’s work is informed by a profound understanding of border culture. He explores issues of identity, race, culture, and community in a wide range of mediums, frequently delivering biting commentary. For Toy An Horse (1997), Ramirez built a two-headed metal and wooden horse, a reference to the Trojan Horse, and placed it at the U.S.-Mexico border between Tijuana and San Diego so that it looked north and south. “Instead of feeling half Mexican and half American, I feel double,” he has said. For ICE TOWER (2008), Ramirez installed a video camera on the rooftop of Estación Tijuana, an arts venue and social space founded by the artist, which delivers a live feed to the Orange County Museum of Art of the barbed-wire fence that marks the border.
