Artist Statement

 

Niño Perdido
(Lost Child)

2005-2009
The 100 drawings that comprise this series are exact replicas, made with the help of a microscope, from the missing person section of Metro, a local newspaper in Mexico City.
 


“Ilán Lieberman enlists the archive as a form of commemoration in Niño Perdido, a series of drawings based on photographs of missing children whose disappearances were reported in local Mexican newspapers. Alternating between document and monument, information and photography, Niño Perdido functions as a kind of pre-obituary for the lost who may never be found. Lieberman’s use of newspaper photographs of the missing children alerts us to the wide-ranging deployment of the photographic portrait as an index of memory, as an image of identification and sometimes disidentification. In each carefully drawn image, he has painstakingly recreated the exact pictorial format of the original newspaper image, as if also creating a memorial to the lost child.”
