Florencia Guillen

Born in 1978 in Mexico City
Lives and works in Guadalajara, Mexico

The core themes of my work are social observation and narration. Public spaces have thus provided most of the material from which I have created my artwork.  Using different media including video, sound, text, drawing, and photography, I roam across a variety of locations from urban neighbourhoods and industrial areas to villages to entire continents documenting activities, people and everyday life objects.  I see my role as an artist as one who participates in the subjective writing of history and I see art as a catalyst of social change.

I draw inspiration from travel and everyday life in different places of the world and use my encounters to gain new perspectives.  Intrinsic to my work is to create collaborations and encounters with people I encounter. In doing this, I seek to shift platforms for art production and its context.
