Sin título
(Quito Luz de América) from the series Toma de luz

2013
Installation | Site-specific intervention

Sin título (Quito Luz de América) proposes the reactivation of one of the key artworks in the history of Ecuadorian modern art: Quito Luz de America (1976) of ecuatorian artist Mauricio Bueno (Quito, 1939). In regards of the re signification of the work in its ironic dimension, this project consists of a double “theft” or appropriation: first, the original artwork is asked on loan to the artist to be re-powered within an exhibition space; and, second, electric power is taken from outside the exhibition space to light on the piece. To accomplish the task, more than 250 mts. of light wire is used to cross over the building and finally turn on the work of Bueno.
