Alejandro Almanza Pereda
Mexico City, 1977
Alejandro Almanza Pereda creates sculptures, photography, video, public art, and art installations that emphasize our affective bonds with objects through works that may appear unstable, immaterial, or on the cusp of disaster. Their structures seem to subvert not only architectural and decorative hierarchies, but also emotional and cultural ones, often involving the expectations and common sense of the viewer.
