ICA Miami presents a site-specific large-scale architectural installation spreading across the Barbara Z. and Sam Herzberg Family Gallery and incorporating old and new sculptures by Carlos Sandoval de León.
For his sculptures and layered installations, the artist sources materials from his neighbourhood in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, as well as from his travels throughout the United States and Mexico: bricks, earth, clothes, volcanic pearls, industrial soap, bullet-proof plexiglass, pizza boxes, armadillo shells, and souvenirs… Exploring the poetics of material culture, the artist draws out the concealed labour and socioeconomic dimensions of care embedded in these everyday objects.
