Beatriz Morales

The Mexican artist Beatriz Morales is interested in transformation and embodied memory.

The series Ruin Porn is an invitation to second-guess our perception, to engage with the aspects of our nature that are hidden from sight. It may be read like a testimony of the passage of time, in which events are constantly covered up and replaced by new scenarios, new states of being layered atop previous realities.

Sometimes, in history as in painting, a crack opens up which reveals a deeper truth that may have been forgotten, but never ceased to exist.
