Eduardo Sarabia and his Fascination with the Quetzal
In the work of Eduardo Sarabia, pottery has become one of the most important mediums for interweaving traditional elements – such as Talavera – with themes of social and natural order that are related to activities associated with illegal economies and survival. "Plumed Serpent and Other Parties" is the most recent installation conceived by the artist, as a result of a personal fascination with the quetzal – its myths and current reality. On it, a montage of sculptures and drawings suggests an alternate path into border-like terrains.
