Published on the occasion of the exhibition “Erick Meyenberg: Re Mayor No es Azul” held from January 18th to May 18th, 2020 at the Museo Amparo, in the city of Puebla, Mexico. Exhibition catalogue presenting a selection of works created by Erick Meyenberg (Mexico 1980) across all media and spanning two decades. Using the five senses, the artist focuses mainly on the use of colors, language and sound to address the rhythms of life and death, life’s fragility and strength, and our fear and astonishment of life and nature while creating a synesthetic experience. “Meyenberg‘s oeuvre raises important and sometimes troubling questions about the different realities that coexist in contemporary Mexico. It is a body of work that ranges across mediums -including drawing, collage, video and sound installation, and sculpture- but which unfailingly incorporates a meticulous observation of the present as we experience through our perceptions" --Page .
