100,000 Mexicans to be found

2022 Hundred Years Gallery, London, UK.

On Justice

More than 100,000 people have disappeared in Mexico, most since 2006. It’s the worst crisis of the disappeared in Latin America since the Cold War, when military-backed governments kidnapped and secretly killed their leftist opponents — an estimated 45,000 in Guatemala, up to 30,000 in Argentina, as many as 3,400 in Chile. Mexico’s numbers keep rising.

The title of this action changes every year. I started this action in 2016, when there were 27,000 people missing in Mexico.

During the period from 2016 to 2022, Mexico’s missing population increased from 27, 000 to 100, 000.

The titles of my performances aim to be read as a positive phrase, a sentence that opens possibilities to find victims, but the number of missing people increases every year and this unexpected change in quantity makes the work title obsolete.
