Volta NY –Espaivasor Galeria


Born 1967 in México DF, México, Tatiana Parcero entitles her series of constructed self portraits Cartografía interior (Interior Cartography) in order to frame her practice as a form of personal mapping, a quest for knowledge about the self, seen through the prisms of history, culture, and geography. Employing photographs of her own body overlaid with maps and other historic documents, she has created an eloquent body of work that merges a poetic process of introspection with creative revelation.

Parcero calls the body “the container that holds everything”; thus, it is the perfect starting point for a search encompassing ancestral origins, cultural history, geography, and the psyche. In titling this series Cartografía Interior, Parcero points to the possibility of re-envisioning the exterior, visible body, as a site of pure meaning. Flesh becomes an expression of the subconscious, the face and eyes reflect the intellect. She displays an essential self, stripped of the clothing or the material accoutrements that would provide a cultural or temporal framework. In contrast, this essential self is bound to history, to a cultural landscape that transcends the here and now.
