(b. Mexico City, Mexico, 1970)



Erika Harrsch was born in Mexico City in 1970. The formal aspects of her oeuvre and languages investigate diverse fields to achieve visual, multisensory, and interactive experiences: a comprehensive reflection about the body and identity, sexuality, desire, the space that defines us. For over six years she has included entomology research as part of her work, using butterflies as a metaphor for themes such as gender, identity, migration, nationality, and the relationship human beings have with their own nature and fragility. She has been defined as a multidisciplinary artist, employing traditional mediums along with new media and technologies to articulate her concepts and interests and the one we wish for, the limits and vertiginous freedom that lead to a continuous corporeal and ideological migration.Harrsch's work has been shown in galleries, festivals, and international artist residencies, as well as the Whitney Museum of American Art (NYC), Museo del Barrio (NYC), Nevada Museum of Art (Reno), Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum (Ridgefield), Neuberger Museum of Art (Purchase), among others. She has lived in several cities throughout the country, as well as Italy, Germany, and Brazil; for the past fourteen years she has lived and worked in New York City.
