©Gabriel Sierra, 'hang it all' still life (hommage a ray + charles eames' design) - tool to dry fruit, 2006

Der columbianische Künstler und Designer Gabriel Sierra works within a situation in which the absence of an art market and the scarcity of functional institutions or non-institutional spaces makes it very difficult to even think about artmaking in professional terms. and so the activity of producing work becomes less dependent upon its eventual exhibitive or commercial value and more clearly tied to those quotidian routines that define who we are as individuals above and beyond our vocational calling.
