Formlessness and the Idea of Boundary seeks to rebuild a series of landscape experiences using materials whose function has been transformed. I’m interested in establishing a relationship with architectural space as a temporary place of appropriation in which the material coveys as an object and is projected in space as an extension of its structure. This project was showed at Casas Riegner Gallery, Bogotá in 2010.
“Beyond some pleasing forms and sleek materials, López Parra’s penchant for unlocking sculptural potential from photographs remains subtle. Treating striking locales as a malleable substance might be a way of objectifying the land, creating a power dynamic in which she gains control over its image. This unleashes an unsettling political dimension to her work, as the ability to traverse boundaries and negotiate borders within South America is an issue ripe with conflict, beckoning questions of who can travel safely, who can access land, and who ultimately speaks for it.” Micah Malone, ArtForum.com
