español | français

The El Gran Vidrio gallery is located on a high traffic avenue, in a sector of the city that concentrate auto parts stores, auto repair shops and wheel repair services.
Operating through material, discursive, and contextual manipulations, the exhibited pieces relate and sediment different aspects of their previous existence in the city.
In this work the roof becomes a base for sculpture, and the viewer is forced to use points of the architectural environment (A hospital in front, an administrative tower or residential buildings around) in order to see the different sectors of the installation.
