The work is built with traditional handmade ceramic from Tlaquepaque, Mexico. This choice of material echoes the variety of components such as ceramic tiles, glass, vinyl, metal; that the artist has implemented in other appropriations of Albers’ color schemes, in some cases situating his practice under the term “Neo-povera”. This work refers Albers’ work and his influence in Minimalist and site-specific sculpture.
Commissioned by Art Basel Miami Beach.
