This group exhibition displays the works of three Mexican artists: Iván Manríquez (BCS,MX 1986-), Sandra Valenzuela (CDMX 1980-), and Teresa Serrano (CDMX 1936). Its title, bi-, stands for the prefix meaning “two”, which in this case, refers to 2 subjects, 2 cultures, 2 genres, 2 states of the matter or of the being, and two sciences: political and social. Among the works shown is TJ-SD a video-installation by Iván Manríquez, where the artist gathers satellite information from the border checkpoint between Tijuana and San Diego and then decodes it into a video and a LED panel. Here the digital graphic representation becomes an abstraction of the economic and social reality of one of the most important checkpoints in the border between México and the United States.[1]   Photographer Sandra Valenzuela’s project X-Boyfriends centers in a visual language that narrates a love story happening in the 1920s; “everything has its masculine and feminine principles.”[2] Luz del ego, by Teresa Serrano, is an installation consisting of two sculptures in steel and neon, “a dialectic on the interior and the exterior; between the connotations of contention and protection.”[3]
