NODO Galeria, Tijuana, BC
NODO is an artist-run gallery established in Tijuana, BC in July 2010. It’s Co-Directors and Founders are by two young and promising local artists, César Vázquez and Jonathan Ruiz de la Peña (both born in Tijuana, BC, in 1986). The idea for establishing NODO derived from an ephemeral exhibition project that took place in Tijuana in the midst of the worst economical-political and cultural crisis the city (country/binational region/world) has yet endured.
For Spectrum Miami César Vázquez y Claudia Ramírez have collectively developed a piece that reflects on the borders both physical and symbolic through the characters that are caught in flight. Clay Human figurines that express the sensation of liberty without trespassing the limits we are brought under or the ones we build for ourselves. To live in Tijuana is a constant re-pondering of the imposed division. This time we pick-up flight so that from above we can look at what happens when we are on one side, then the other, and across.
