Línea rota de horizonte / Broken Line of Horizon, 2021
Bronze, limestone, carborundum, metal, wood, cement, soil, trunks, cigarette butts
Variable Dimensions

The large-scale installation, Línea rota de horizonte establishes a dialogue between the structures of the city and their relationship with nature — highlighting the ways in which nature is in many cases abused or neglected. The installation is based on the American sycamore tree (Platanus occidentalis), a common sight in the streets of Madrid. Made from bronze, wood, soil, trunks and metal, a single tree emerges from a group of stumps arranged in grids, just as we find the at the urban space and remarking here the compressed landscape.
