Pasajeros 2- Mexico City - Mexico
PASAJEROS is a series of micro biographical exhibitions that highlight the passage through Mexico of influential foreigners who have influenced the evolution of the nation’s artistic discourse.
Referring to the concept of a series of characters, this exhibition design piece consists of a modulated folding screen made out of wood and brass. Each module unfolds a different display. The nine different typologies are structured in between them using joints that generate thousands of combinations. Tables, stands, shelves, windows and brass bars characterize the panels that support the documentary materials exhibited in each of the PASAJEROS exhibitions.
The first exhibition of the PASAJEROS series, gives a brief look into the legacy of the renowned theatre director Jerzy Grotowski (Rzeszów, Poland 1933-1999) and his mysterious visits to Mexico.
