Adrien Missika — Amexica
Past: April 25 → July 13, 2014
Born in Paris in 1981, Adrien Missika is a graduate of ECAL. He lives and works in Berlin. He was awarded the 2011 Prix Fondation d’entreprise Ricard and the 2013 Georg and Josi Guggenheim Foundation Prize.
Amexica is a new project by Missika that took shape during a trip along the border between Mexico and the United States. The artist used a drone mainly to film several natural and urban sites between Ciudad Juarez and Tijuana, to offer a different point of view on this closely monitored zone. Missika’s efforts have given rise to a highly ambitious piece, the most politically charged work of his output. In preparing it, the artist collaborated with the musician Victor Tricard.
An artist’s book devoted to the Amexica project is jointly published by CCS / éditions Periferia, with the generous support of the Georg and Josi Guggenheim Foundation.
