Coral Saucedo Lomelí was born in 1993 in Mexico City. Her work is influenced by personal and poetic visual experiences that make up the “everyday.” She investigates displacement, ad-hocism, making do, and a solution based on lacking. Utilizing these frameworks, her work aims to redefine the layers of cultural and architectural history that make up her surroundings. Saucedo Lomeli completed her undergraduate studies in fine art at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena and her MFA at Yale University. During her time in Los Angeles she worked as an art fabricator and production manager at Dyson & Womack assisting in the ideation and fabrication of projects like the Current: LA Public Art Biennial. She did a residency with the Architectural Association School of Architecture in Xilitla (2016), with Jacobo and Maria Angeles in Tilcajete, Oaxaca (2014) and at a construction site in San Borja #928 in Mexico City (2018). She was awarded the Provost grant and the San Marino Art League Scholarship as well as a Fonca/Conacyt grant. Saucedo Lomeli wants to continue to seek out human interventions in new urban landscapes, and explore how they can be reframed as unique poetic moments.
