A dialog between destruction and the narrative…
The new proposal from Erick Sánchez is a response to environmental, social, political and inhumane worldwide contemporary issues. He gives shape to an unstable space that no longer has or will disappear because of globalization, industrialization and global warming. This leads to natural disasters extinguishing life and nature. These events are the consequences of human behavior. Theologists call it the Apocalypse; the Rapture. He calls it destiny.
Meanwhile Rodolfo Edward’s works with the City narratives and its system of inner transformation such as its human component are aesthetically and discursively represented. In the works a sense of non-territoriality seems to clash with the Maps, places and patterns which preceded the rapid expansion Practices and its advanced and modern traces which begun to take place in the beginning of the 20th Century. Because of a series of belligerent, political and economical reasons, cities have experimented structural changes, in a contract with powerful conventionalities such as agreeing and belonging to the globalized world.
