The Body Is Lost Outside
2018 | Galleri Nicolai Wallner | Copenhagen, Dk
Plaster casting molds used in the production of ceramics have been placed throughout the space, their insides gilded in gold leaf. The molds come from a local ceramics factory in Guadalajara, where Dávila is based, which produces objects like cups and plates as well as more specialised pieces and artworks. The molds exist as remnants of a process, leftovers meant to be discarded or stored until their next use. Their importance is thus practical in nature, as the value they possess lies in their ability to create other objects.
