> DESCRIPTION

The exhibition proposes a study on the line in space in the work of three artists: Dario Escobar (Guatemala, b. 1971), Ricardo Rodríguez (Puerto Rico, b. 1983) and Enrique Castrejón (Mexico, b. 1972). The line is not only the foundation of drawing but of other art disciplines, as the representation of a line in space marks delimitations as well as movement. The two works in MOLAA’s collection, Kukulkán, 2009, by Darío Escobar and Attempt to Construct, 2010, by Ricardo Rodríguez, use the line in a poetic way to address the nature of sculpture. In the case of Escobar, his work consists of baroque lines of rubber snakes which struggle to return to their natural curved state. Rodríguez’s work is a continuous line that breaks the barrier of bi-dimensionality of a photograph as the line “comes out” form the plane as a rope, a tridimensional object, which has no beginning and no end as an ouroboros. The curators have invited artist Enrique Castrejón to create an installation which will respond to the two works and will serve as a conceptual bridge using measurement and line to bring together time and space as intricate parts in the process of drawing.
