Premio Maguey awards the best of LGBTQ cinema in the world, and does so in a symbolic manner through its EMME pieces, unique hand-made creations with a distinctive personality that represent the dual nature of the human being, the reiteration of the junctures that complement us to make us one.
The pieces are created to extol the careers of personalities that promote diversity and acceptance, and that have left a mark in the quest for a world in which there is no discrimination.
Artist Adrián Guerrero is the creator of these pieces, which in this eighth edition are influenced by the Premio Maguey Enqueerate art work elaborated by artist Mariana Lorenzo, also known as Maremoto, and sketched by designer Ericka Medina.
ADRIÁN GUERRERO CASTELLANOS
He lives and works in Guadalajara. Architect (ITESO). Master’s Degree in Philosophy & Social Sciences (ITESO). Teaches Ceramic Sculpture & Creativity II workshops at the ITESO University. Self-taught Ceramist.
Adrian Guerrero’s work denotes a constant search to analyze the human perception, supported on the field of philosophy from different levels, generating new views and resignifying what at first sight is common to us. His thoughts and processes begin with what is simple, from the surprise of the small and everyday things. It is possible to interpret his path like an ellipse that permanently comes back -although renewed- to the travelled road, retaking and reinterpreting inquiries which have become a constant in his work: time, spatial relationships and the phenomenology of things.
Without leaving aside his passion for different ceramic techniques, he creates pieces, objects and installations with different materials and pillars such as photography, video, drawing, sculpture and painting.
