Erik Bernardo Tlaseca Gaona (CDMX, 1989) is an interdisciplinary visual artist who studied Plastic and Visual Arts at the ENPEG “La Esmeralda” and the National University of Bogotá, Colombia.
In 2017 he was part of the Photographic Production Seminar of the Image Center. In 2014-2015 and 2018-2019 he was awarded the FONCA Young Creators scholarship and between 2019 and 2020 he was part of the BBVA – MACG program. He completed artistic residency programs at Motel Spatie, the Netherlands, at the WRO Art Center, Poland, and at the KUNCI Cultural Studies Center, Indonesia, as well as participated in various group exhibitions, including the Jakarta Biennale in Indonesia.
He was a founding member of Cooperativa Cráter Invertido, Zúngale and Taller de Producción Editorial.
His work addresses themes that arise from unattainable memories and images that have a connection on territorial transformations and changes in identity. The images and the archive are essential in his work, since they unite memory with his identity.
Research, field work and a symbiosis carried out with palm weavers from the Mixe area in San Pedro Jocotipac are evident in the video ‘Some day the night will come’.
