Whitney Biennial

Stripes and fence forever (Homage to Jasper Johns): Installation of a wall/fence/flag, placed diagonally over a squared area on the floor, filled with dirt, and contained by two walls made of brick, (on the Mexico side); and two walls made of concrete blocks (USA side). The piece is made out of metal sheets, iron bars, and a rigid iron mesh that replicates the shape and style of the fence that divides Mexico and USA; specifically the cities of Tijuana and San Diego.
Democracy 2000: Three independent aluminum panels, painted green, white and red, separately installed, to leave a gap between each other. The center panel (white) displays Mexico’s national seal, with a subtle but significant alteration, the snake is long enough to bite the eagle on the neck.
