Abraham Cruzvillegas (b. 1968) Is One Of The Most Important Conceptual Artists Of His Generation To Come Out Of The Vibrant Art Scene In Mexico. Over The Past 10 Years, Cruzvillegas Has Developed A Riveting Body Of Work That Investigates What He Calls Autoconstrucción, Or ‘self-construction.’ Informed By The Sociopolitical Contexts Of Latin America, Cruzvillegas Has Garnered Much Attention For His Dynamic Assemblage Sculptures Made Of Found Objects. Interested In Improvised Building Materials And Techniques, He Roots His Sculptural Practice Within The Urban Landscape Of His Childhood Home In Ajusco, A District In The South Of Mexico City. To This Day, Ajusco’s Landscape Of Volcanic Rock Remains A Work In Process, With Structures In A Constant State Of Transformation As Additions Are Made When Materials Become Available And Necessity Dictates. This Way Of Constructing Has Become The Basis Of Cruzvillegas’ Own Thinking And Methodology, While Operating As A Rich Metaphor For The Articulation Of Individual Identity And Place. Featuring 30 To 35 Individual Sculptures And Installations, Along With His Recent Experiments In Video, Film, And Performance, Abraham Cruzvillegas: The Autoconstrucción Suites Is The First Major Presentation To Shed Light On The Artist’s Unique Vision And Multifaceted Practice.–http://www.walkerart.org.
