THE SPOT (2011)
A site-specific installation created for La Galería de Comercio. LGdC is a public exhibition space located at the North East corner of Comercio and Martí streets, in Escandón district, in México City, behind the school Miguel F Martínez, half a corner away from Escandón market, in front of the beer pub “Martí” and Morelos public garden, one block away from Patriotismo Avenue, and three blocks far from Patriotiismo subway station.
