AuTOIconstruction will be an evening of art and poetry, calling volunteers to read aloud all lyrics written by Abraham Cruzvillegas since 2008, while he constructs a sculpture made of materials collected in the museum, to be destroyed during the same event.
In his work, Abraham Cruzvillegas explores the economic dynamics of the temporary, the artisanal and the recycled. The artist uses production strategies that range from collecting to assembling, but also reinterpreting, materials.
This performance is presented as part of the exhibition YOU. Œuvres de la collection Lafayette Anticipations, on view at Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris until February 16, 2020, and which includes the work Self Constructed Upside Down Shelter (2017) by Abraham Cruzvillegas.
