Biography

Edgar was born in 1989 in Mexico City, where he currently lives and works. He studied Architecture at the Faculty of Architecture – UNAM and at Bauhaus Universität Weimar, where he began his practice as an artist. His studies highly influence his work: “My work engages in questioning the objectual and spatial representation by finding precision through personal experience. I explore ways to highlight the value of emotional memory over physical memory by investigating the emotional ties we hold with objects and spaces through the memories contained within them. My body of work is constructed as an archive of spatial research methodologies on different scales, where I seek to specify invisible, inherent, or emotional relationships.”

Edgar was a recipient of the “Fulbright – García Robles” scholarship and the “Young Creators” scholarship from the Ministry of Culture. He won the First Place in the Open Lumen Biennial, was a finalist twice in the JA Monroy Biennial, participated with SOMA in “Landscapes” at the Museo Jumex (CDMX), collaborated on the project “Fictitious Architecture” at the Laboratorio Arte Alameda (CDMX), and completed the Piso 16 program: Laboratory of Cultural Initiatives, UNAM.

His work has been exhibited individually and collectively in Mexico, Spain, Germany, the United States, and Colombia and is part of public and private collections in Mexico, Colombia, and the United States.
