Mexican Based (Mexico City) Interlude Artist
“My work is inspired by the Latin American context; what happens in the streets, in the bars, in the cities, in the ballrooms, with its people, at their desks, in their economic crisis, the daily life under- lined with a sense of humor, the political and the poetic, food, gambling, leisure, self-construction. I’m currently working on a project called “La Jocosidad” which aims to claim the party, the meeting, the laughter, the leisure and laziness of a world in constant perpetual change, returning the white cube into a living space and if you can’t dance it’s not my revolution.” -Laura Meza Orozco
