In the early 1990s, Silvia Gruner significantly contributed to the creation of a distinct vocabulary for Mexican contemporary art through the appropriation of vernacular culture.

About

Gruner’s work delves into the relationship between the body (personal) and identity (collective), a dichotomy which often locates her work in two poles: the psychological and subjective, and the political and public. Her explorations blend feminism and post-conceptualism with experimental film, photography, installation, and performance. As a meditation on desire and malady, her work unleashes a paradoxical impetus for excess and contention that manifests resistance against the idea of an artistic style in the contemporary art world, with a critical positioning in relation to the present dominance of the art market.

An expanded version of the exhibition will be presented from October 2016 to January 2017 at the Museo Amparo in Puebla, Mexico.
