    Eileen Cowin is an artist who sees living as a means to break boundaries, and psychology as a way to confront us with strange attitudes or to implicate us in seemingly self-imposed spatial confinements. –Art Papers April 2007 by Eve Wood

Eduardo Sarabia

Eduardo SarabiaEduardo SarabiaEduardo SarabiaEduardo Sarabia

 

Eduardo Sarabia ('99), born in L.A., lives in Berlin and Guadalajara. His work honors and mocks his Latino heritage through exposing Mexican cultural clichés about drug smuggling, banditry, and the import/export of tawdry contraband. He stages semifictional events, for which he creates the fake evidence: handcrafted ceramic objects, drawings, paintings, photographs, and sculptures. An installation titled “A Thin Line between Love and Hate” (2005) juxtaposed shipping boxes screenprinted with “Maizena,” “Producto de Colima”) and the containers’ “real” contents—blue-and-white Chinese-style vases decorated with images of pinup girls, marijuana leaves, rifles, and skulls.

At Salon Aleman, in Berlin, created for curator Anton Vidokle's Unitednationsplaza, patrons drank the artist’s Sarabia tequila. Playing on the stereotype of Latinos as cantina dwellers, Sarabia exposed the symbiosis between the third-world poverty of rural agave farming and tequila production and the first-world market economy. His work blends humor and absurdity, reinforcing the importance of considering the physical and human consequences of economic forces.
