Artist statement

Daniel Aguilar Ruvalcaba (México, 1988). I’m a visual artist. I do drawings, collages, videos, sculptures, texts and many other stuff. I like to read and research about topics that most of the time I don’t understand well but that are challenging to me. The notion of “baroque economies”, a concept by the thinker Verónica Gago is fundamental to what I’m doing right now. The artworks I like to do are long-term, sometimes takes me 2 years to finally decide to start them (lol) and to finish them maybe an other 2 years. But in the meantime I do creepy cute drawings and many other little things just for fun.

Currently I’m a member of different collective art initiatives like the non-profit art space Biquini Wax EPS (MX), the production house El Colegio de la (des)extinción (MX-NL) and the jamming band Tropical Tap Water (NL).

During my residency at the Rijksakademie I’m trying to produce a smoking mirror.
