Artist's book.
Amexica is a project by Adrien Missika that took shape during a trip along the border between Mexico and the United States. The artist used a drone mainly to film several natural and urban sites between Ciudad Juarez and Tijuana, to offer a different point of view on this closely monitored zone. Missika's efforts have given rise to a highly ambitious piece, the most politically charged work of his output.
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at CCS Paris from April to July 2014.
Born in Paris in 1981, Adrien Missika is a graduate of ECAL. He lives and works in Berlin. He was awarded the 2011 Prix Fondation d'entreprise Ricard and the 2013 Georg and Josi Guggenheim Foundation Prize.
