94,000 Mexicans to be Found - Veronica Cordova

94,000 Mexicans to be Found is reproducible banner artwork that informs its audience of the disappearance crisis in Mexico. When first displayed at the Glass Tank Gallery, Oxford in 2016 Cordova’s work was titled 27,000 Mexicans to be Found, which shows us the shocking developments made in this story over the last 6 years. Veronica Cordova multifaceted artist based in Oxford creating artworks that touch on subjects of trauma, violence and striking societal research.

Cordova creates paintings, risograph prints, performance artworks and the documentation behind it. She works both on her own and in collaboration with other individuals and groups. In her artistic process, she aims to identify, name and transform symbolic violence, white patriarchal and racist policies into artworks that resist their effects herself and others.

Cordova Explains:

The title of this action ‘94 Mexicans to be found’ aims to be read as a positive phrase, a sentence that opens possibilities to find the victims, but the number of missing people increases every year and this unexpected change in quantity makes the title of the work obsolete. The performance can be repeated in different places and with a different quantity of numbers and cipher of numbers in the title.
