"Teresa Margolles went to several cities of the country such as Culiacán, Novolato, Ciudad Juárez, Querétaro and Mexico City. In these cities, she gave 150 T-shirts to young adults in order for them to use whilst doing everyday activities. The sweat impregnated in these garments was then applied in a systematic, methodic and precise fashion -much like an autopsy- on the glass walls of the gallery."
