“Entropías” by Gabriel de la Mora unites works from five of the artist’s major series: the presentation encompasses works from his “Burned Papers”, “Neon Papers”, and “Plafonds” series. Additional works on view include the most ambitious work from de la Mora’s “CaCO3” series produced to date, which features 273,472 individually affixed pieces of eggshell as well as a significant new piece from his Obsidian (volcanic glass) series.
De la Mora is known for the precision of his practice that reframes and reorganizes discarded or obsolete objects that he acquires mostly in and around Mexico City. Antique radios, metro tickets, microscope slides, and shoe soles are cut and set in exact geometric and random arrangements, giving the objects new life.
