About the Artist

In photographs, videos, and installations, Monica Martinez examines the dualities of her hometown—Juarez, Mexico—from the vantage point of El Paso where she now lives. Mass production is the locus of mechanized industry and culture in Juarez; Martinez observes the relationship between mechanized factory labor and the hyper-normalization of violence. She compares feminicides and organized crimes to manufacturing machines due to their rapid production of goods/violence.
