This exhibition at REDCAT, Los Angeles, works as a continuation of The Dead Animals, presented at Museo Tamayo a few months before. Both pieces were produced in a brickworks in Ajalpan, a small city in the state of Puebla.
The central piece is a big installation across the space recreating the system of a pointing machine, an old measuring tool used by sculptors in order to copy models of plaster or terra-cotta into wood or stone. Some details of the area of rest and leisure of the brickworks’ workers were molded by using fresh tiles.
Bronze, wood, metal and fired clay.
Graphite on paper and steel fragments.
