For this individual exhibition, Giandomenico Tonatiuh Pellizzi has proposed to transform the exhibition space of Museo Amparo into a monumental art shipping crate, using the aesthetics of art packing as his model.


 I Transport measures 3.7 x 9 x 8.5 m, with the peculiar feature that it is subdivided into 171 separate and unique pieces. I Transport alludes to the ontological construction of knowledge, history, memory, and aesthetics. The piece strives to sublimate the creative act into one of the most common processes by which art globalization occurs: the transportation of artworks, artists, discourses, and cultural experiences.

This enormous container strictly complies with all technical requirements for international shipments, including the fumigation processes for all wooden elements and plywood, as well as having the whole interior covered in ethafoam padding. Each of the pieces comprising the installation have been conceptualized within the framework of the Western artistic canon, resulting in sculptural and graphic objects arranged specifically for the context of the exhibition space itself, including its architecture.

Following the paradigms of institutional critique, Pellizzi detected an ideal moment to insert himself into the public economies of Mexican museum culture, actively engaging the interstices of museum operations, their curatorial construction, and the strategic locus they occupy in society. I Transport hyperbolizes the contents of the museum itself.
