Felipe Zúņiga (Mexico City, b. 1978) His installations and videos have been shown in Mexico as well as internationally in venues such as the Zacheta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw, Poland; El Centro Cultural Espaņol (CCE) in Miami, Florida; the Consulate General of Mexico in Los Angeles, California; and Casa del Lago, Mexico City, among others..
His recent artistic practice has been focus in the interconnection between body, communication and space. This broad equation has been contracted and expanded regarding he is working in an private-intimate space such as my studio or public spaces such as the border between Tijuana an San Diego.
His working field is developed in the intersection between performance, language, and video. There is also an important component about the individual-personal and the collective-social that fluctuates from project to project, i.e. the use of speech quotation of a selected group of people regarding identity politics in one case, to the insertion of intimate statements in the public realm.
One of his main interests gravitate around how the phenomena of language in-forms our identities and shapes the space -private or public- contracting it, expanding it, displacing it.
His recent work in the broad realm of identity and communication had included the development of different strategies of approach, from the position of performer to the curator-producer, in every case, one his main goal is to produce a platform of communication that can modify (even for minimal lapse of time) the perception of a person, a situation,or a place.
