Abstract:

About 45,000 children are reported missing in Mexico every year, according to Aprenem (Asociación Pro Recuperación de Niños Extraviados y Orientación de la Juventud de México), an organization dedicated to trying to find them. Lieberman spent more than three years working on 100 drawings that are intricate copies of often bad-quality newspaper photographs of missing children, taken from the Mexican newspaper Metro. Using a pencil and a microscope, he labored over each postage stamp-sized portrait for two weeks - almost as though he was paying personal homage to each boy and girl. The result is a show of tiny drawings framed and hung in the gallery of the museum, and the exhibitions visitors inspect the detailed images with magnifying glasses provided as part of the work. The exhibition also features the newspapers from which Lieberman cut out many of the images that he so painstakingly copied. Often, ads for the missing children with basic information such as their age and where they disappeared were published alongside lists of recovered stolen cars, or on the other side of a news page carrying bloody, attention-grabbing stories. The show brings out the profundity of those tiny images -- how the loss of something so precious is represented in such a poor way. It also reflects a very sad reality and one that, according to Aprenem, the Mexican government does little to change. But Lieberman insists that the show is not a direct attempt to change government action on the issue, but to prompt society as a whole to reflect more on Mexico's disappeared children. The project has an artistic angle, examining the concept of reproduction versus originals.
