The Giant Woman and the Obscene Figure
By Jesús Aguado
“Totalidad y Fragmento, Totality and Fragment” is the new sculpture exhibit at Paseo de los Conspiradores, the work of the Mexican sculptor, José Luis Cuevas.
The pieces from Leonora Carrington were removed to give space to the second exhibit at the new Paseo de los Conspiradores. The heavy effigies that decorate the entrance to the city are from José Cuevas, who is also a writer, painter, and illustrator.
Among the exhibited sculptures are La Giganta (The Giant Woman a four-meter-high monument); Cabeza (Head) I, III and IV, Caballo de Madera (Wooden Horse), Beatriz del Carmen y José Luis, and as Figura Obscena (Obscene Figure). Visitors can sit on pieces like The Bench and rest for a moment or take a photo.
Previously, Mayor Ricardo Villarreal told Atención that his administration is working to get donated art from well-known artists across the world whose pieces would remain permanently at Paseo de los Conspiradores.
“Totalidad y Fragmento” was inaugurated on January 12 and will remain there for three months.
