As part of the exhibition You. Œuvres de la collection Lafayette Anticipations.

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.

Discover his work Self Constructed Upside Down Shelter (2017) in the exhibition  You. Œuvres de la collection Lafayette Anticipations.
