Julio Orozco is a conceptual artist who has developed a wide artistic range that includes installations, video and photography. Julio is from Tijuana, and his work-which uses fact and fiction – documents the changing face of the city as it has been going through a dynamic transformation in recent years. His knowledge of the city goes beyond the surfaces of the urban and into the psyche of the residents of the city, who, in the midst of rapid development, are having a hard time holding onto notions of fixed realities. They, however, continue to use dream and fantasy, as coping mechanisms to the changing conditions that attempt to quickly erase the past to serve a not yet conceived future.
