The Mexican artist first drew international attention with his highly diverse and varied sculptural works of object theatre. These objects span a broad spectrum, from plastic flowers to coca cola, ceramic plates, CDs, second-hand mobile phones, glass bottles, plastic fruits, toys, and other consumerist goods found in pop culture. In the present exhibition, he integrates traditional Mexican techniques with contemporary practices to compel the viewer to think about the formation of the modern world and the contemporary human. The works possess specific cues to lead viewers down a path that allows them to create their own narrative.

The artist’s work is known for the interrelation of objects; he uses found, collected, and manufactured objects to make sculptures with the goal of compelling audiences to think about the relationship between humans and our natural environment. His creations combine both natural and unnatural forms, and their combination exposes both the asymmetry in the literal works as well as the asymmetry within culture and politics.
