Ver ArtistaTeresa Margolles

Teresa Margolles was born in Culiacán, Sinaloa Mexico in 1963.

She studied art at the Dirección de Fomento a la Cultura Regional del Estado de Sinaloa (DIFOCUR) and communication sciences at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and was awarded by the Servicio Médico Forense a diploma in forensic medicine.

In 1990 she founded together with Arturo Ángulo Gallardo, Juan Luis García Zavaleta and Carlos López Orozco the group SEMEFO – short for ´Servicio Médico Forense´, which refers deliberately to the forensic medical service. At first the group was active mainly as the Death Metal Rock Band and an underground performance group, then it moved into the art-scene with its first exhibition in 1993. The number of members fluctuates.

In 1996 Margolles and the rest of the group SEMEFO held a course for children, teaching them how to stuff animals. From the Fondo Nacional de Cultura y las Artes, she was awarded in the years 1994 (with SEMEFO) and 1996 the grant Jóvenes Creadores (for sculpture and alternative media) and from 2001-03 took part in the Sistema Nacional de Creadores de Arte.

She has received many prizes including in 1996 the first prize in the Salón de Plástica Sinaloense, in 2000 an acquisition prize in the competition Cuerpo y Fruta of the French Embassy in Mexico City, and in 2001 an honourable mention at the Northwest Biennale in Culiacán and an acquisition prize at the 7th Biennale of Cuenca in Ecuador. With the group SEMEFO she was awarded an acquisition prize at the Biennale of Monterrey in 1999, the year in which she took part in the art exchange program between Mexico and Columbia.

Teresa Margolles, the only member of the group to work and exhibit on her own, lives in Mexico City.
