JOSE DÁVILA | CONJUNTO ESCULTÓRICO

SAN JACINTO PARK, GUADALAJARA, MEXICO
PERMANENT INSTALLATION SINCE 2017
The proposal for the San Jacinto Park consists of concrete blocks placed one on top of the other to visually simulate the play of weights and tensions of said blocks in equilibrium against gravity. Stabilized by raw volcanic rocks.
The park functions as a platform for social interaction whose renovation ten years ago has improved the dynamics of the community. The concrete sculptures continue along this line, promoting interaction with the public, who will ultimately decide on the function of the piece. This being one of the parks with the most activities in the city. The sculptures/monuments can act on the surrounding public space, serving as urban furniture, reading space, shade and roof.
Commissioned by Secretary of Culture of Jalisco State, Mexico.
