> DESCRIPTION

Cortéz’s large-scale installation SUDDENLY WE HAD nothing consists of a densely collaged wall-based work. The piece examines the multiplicity of meaning within language. Through a non-traditional process of acquisition, the artist constructs a seemingly nonsensical assortment of images that enact the type of information overload we encounter in everyday life. Acting as a type of social anthropologist, Cortéz collects everything as tokens of our cultural propensity for accumulation, and creates from them a contradictory arrangement in which order/disorder and novelty/banality collide.

SUDDENLY WE HAD nothing continues to April 27, 2012, in the HOY Space.
