Damián Ortega in Madrid

2016-08-Ortega-MadridDamián Ortega: the Rock and the Abyss

Palacio de Cristal, Parque del Retiro, Madrid
5 May – 2 October 2016

This Ortega installation revisits the artist’s previous series (2007), which was inspired by Mexico City’s Torre Latinoamérica, built between 1949 and 1956 and regarded as one of the most important examples of modern architecture in Mexico. In his new installation Ortega has inverted the tower and hung it from the dome of the Palacio as an hour-glass cum pendulum which releases grains of sand in unpredictable designs. Organised by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía .
