Bosco Sodi builds wall at Union Square in New York

Tag: Bosco Sodi / Muro / Union Square

Bosco Sodi, "Muro", 2017

Bosco Sodi (Mexico City, 1970) presents, on September 7th, the public installation Muro at the Union Square in New York City (USA).

Composed by 1600 clay timbers crafted and fired in Oaxaca (Mexico), the ephemeral and participatory installation consists of an almost 2 meters high and 8 meters long wall to be build and unbuild on the same day with the participation of the public in the latter stage.  The project expands upon Sodi’s ongoing interest in organic processes beyond the artist’s control. The impermanent nature of Muro further underscores the sentiment that all obstacles have the potential to be dismantled through united forces.

For this action the public is invited to participate in the dissolution of the wall that will happen on the same day as the closure of the action.
