The work of Jorge Sosa (Mexico, 1976) scrutinizes the social engineering that gives life to common experiences. Through what he calls ‘transient documents’ (sculptures, videos, drawings, photographies and publications) explores everyday events as collisions between cultural tissues, economic and political of the social system in which he lives. In his practice there are symbiotic relationships between conceptual elements and materials, as a metabolic process that generates breaks in the interpretation of the ordinary.
In Sosa’s words, art is a remnant of the cultural fluid, always vaporous and irrepressible, and the artwork is a kind of protocol constructed with burrs or splashing that were originated in some aspect of survival. In this sense, his work is an inventory of simple actions, a hermeneutic exercise about the construction of experience.
