Jorge Satorre (Mexico City, 1979)
Through manual processes and experimentation with different materials, my work usually starts off as a response to small evidential traces that are part of historical moments of the contexts and subjects I relate to. After a brief incursion at the beginning of my career in the field of editorial illustration, drawing has remained my main medium, often produced by me, but also by colleagues I invite to collaborate from different areas like political cartoonists, and scientific and comic strips illustrators. The narrative possibilities of drawing allow me to make the objective record coexist with fictional elements, understanding this relationship as one of oscillation between different scales, between the individual and subjective and the general, hegemonic versions.
Some of the venues where I have had solo presentations of my work are: REDCAT, Los Angeles (2018), Museo Tamayo, Mexico City (2017), Labor gallery, Mexico City (2017, 2014, and 2010); Statements, Art Basel (2014); Artspace, Auckland; Enjoy, Wellington; Halfhouse, Barcelona (all in 2013); Le Grand Café, St-Nazaire, France; FormContent, London; Centro Cultural Montehermoso, Vitoria (all in 2010); Xippas Gallery, Paris (2013 and 2008); Process Room/ Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2007), and La Casa Encendida, Madrid (2006).
