Marisol Mendez


PhotoVogue Resident: Marisol Mendez’s (BO) artistic practice dramatises the artifice of the photographic medium, unpacking the tensions underlying binaries of past and present, real and fictive, candid and staged, naturalistic and mythical. Her work questions hegemonic narratives and confronts them with the friction of the heterogeneous. Image-making is Marisol’s channel to make visible the tension between truth and fiction, the tight relationship between what a photograph creates and the (sur)real it comes from.
