Eduardo Sarabia on Miami Beach

Eduardo Sarabia | Proyectos Monclova

The title of Eduardo Sarabia's work at Art Public references the identity cards stored with archeological objects. In this case the 'archeological' object is a snake-skinned boot which can be related to a drug lord, referencing the drug conflicts in (Northern) Mexico. The artwork only hints at the drug trafficking conflicts. A pair of snake skin boots can be perceived as an identifier of a powerful outlawed class, directly related to a much bigger and more complex political situation. The artist creates fake evidence of an unfolding event, in a commemorating and somehow mocking way. The viewer must enter the artist’s fantastic realm in order to understand the information found in documentation and the communicating power of certain objects.
