One could argue that Ángela Gurría’s sculptural practice encapsulates fundamental changes that sculpture underwent in Mexico during the second half of the twentieth century. Although the artist chose to outline certain considerations and interests by using a register that is patently modern, her work expresses the movement between modernism’s legacy and concerns present in contemporary art. Without question, the link to the conditions and problematics of the historical moment is one such consideration. To this we could also add her formal and material experimentation, her renewed appreciation for the natural world, her reuse of certain readymade objects and her attention to architecture’s integration into and dialogue with its broader urban context.
