Taro Zorrilla

Born 1980 in Mexico City, Mexico; lives and works in Mexico City

Taro Zorrilla has degrees in architecture from Waseda University in Japan and Autonomous University of Mexico. He was included in the Mexican Pavilion of the first Lisbon Architecture Triennial in 2007, and he designed the cultural center of the Japanese Embassy in Mexico in 2010. In 2011, he received a grant from the Pola Art Foundation. Recently, he has shown work at the Festival Internacional Cervantino in Mexico (2014) and at the Taro Okamoto Museum in Japan (2015). Zorrilla’s work explores community behavior and conscience; gathering together the values, knowledge, and dreams of the members of a group, his work recreates or reflects the community ideal. He has focused on multicultural and multinational communities, particularly in relation to human migration habits.
