Jorge Yázpik Untitled , 2016
Jorge Yázpik (b. Mexico City, 1955) is a sculptor and artist with over three decades of experience in the artistic field and has challenged many of the elements that have become hallmarks of abstract sculpture. Yázpik’s trajectory has stitched the seam between geometric abstraction and post-minimalism. In different scales, the benches constructed as public works for installation in Mexico City’s Centro Histórico and the rings he creates in wood, metal, crystal and semi-precious stones, annul the distance between viewer and object, work of art and furniture, personal adornment or performative tool, becoming the “malleable objects” of contemporary post-conceptual art.
