Emiliano Moreno Quesada is an artist based in Thiotià:ke – Mooniyang (Montreal) who works with photography, sculpture, and installation. His works often feature humor and appropriation to create a complex web of ideas and associations. Drawing inspiration from memes and internet culture, Emiliano seeks to explore their functions in art history and contemporary life by bringing them into physical form. Being a Mexican immigrant raised in Canada, Emiliano's work centers on notions of identity and place, particularly how he occupies an in-between space, a zone of transition. He is interested in exploring how this state can be translated and linked to his previous methods of working, as he investigates his identity as a collection of images and contradictory objects.
