Promise of a Better World
2011 | Demetria Gallery | Guadalajara, MX
This project is a plastic consideration about local urbanism. As a kind of model that underpins the artist relation to the city of Guadalajara, Promise of a Better World concerns issues about the reference and the platonic idea. A series of concrete blocks hold a white shadow of neon light on one of their sides, paraphrasing José Clemente Orozco’s notion of painting fake shadows that fascinated Luis Barragán.
