About

Mexican artist Abraham Cruzvillegas talks about his sculptural propositions of ‘autoconstrucción' and ‘autodestrucción', ahead of a new body of work opening at Thomas Dane Gallery. Cruzvillegas has garnered much attention for his dynamic assemblage sculptures made of found objects. ‘Autoconstrucción' (auto-construction) is the term Cruzvillegas uses to describe his art, the roots of which lie in the improvised construction methods and techniques of his native Mexico City. Born 1968, Abraham Cruzvillegas lives and works in Mexico City and Paris. Recent solo exhibitions include: Abraham Cruzvillegas: The Autoconstrucción Suites, Haus der Kunst, Munich, 2014; Abraham Cruzvillegas: The Autoconstrucción Suites, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, 2013; Autodestrucción 2, Museo Experimental el Eco, Mexico City, 2013; Autodestrucción 3: Avant et après le voyage de AA a la terre rouge, Galerie Chantal Crousel, Paris, 2013; Abraham Cruzvillegas, Kurimanzutto, Mexico City, 2012; Abraham Cruzvillegas: Autodestrucción 1, Regen Projects, Los Angeles, 2012; and Autoconstrucción: Antonio Castro, Abraham Cruzvillegas & Antonio Fernández Ros, Tate Modern, London, 2012.
