irak morales


(Mexico, 1981)

Lives and works among Mexico City, Oaxaca, Tijuana and Estado de México

irak morales’ priority is to be as attentive as possible to his surroundings, to observe obliquely the immediate, what happens every day, scrutinizing nooks and loopholes of concerns, to experiment with the senses and imagination. For irak morales, the medium or form of the idea depends on the dialogue that the place, space, time and matter arouses, with which it is possible to work, without worrying about the disciplines that are used.
