JOSE DÁVILA | LOS LÍMITES DE LO POSIBLE

PRIVATE COLLECTION, VALLE DE BRAVO, MEXICO
PERMANENT INSTALLATION SINCE 2021
As a sculptural forest, Dávila proposed a series of works made with volumes of Tepeaca marble and raw stones. The interplay between the angular geometric shapes of the enclosure volumes and the capricious edges of the undisturbed stones reveal a contrasting relationship. This material divergence highlights the need for active collaboration between the elements involved in order to achieve a situation of permanence and balance. The raw materials integrate organically with the environment where they are installed; the main intention is to produce a contemplative space where viewers can relate on a spatial level with the sculptures that take technical processes to poetic dimensions. The vertical accumulation of the volumes of the enclosure and the raw rocks express a primary structural intuition that materializes in the most basic manifestation of construction.
