    Receive an original artwork by Marco Rountree.

    (Frame included only in Mexico City)

    Marco Rountree once described his artistic practice as being “about how you can give importance to objects by taking them home and treating them like a decoration.” This fondness for surprising combinations and visual ornamentation finds its roots in Rountree’s days as a graffiti artist. His series “Walking Objects” (2011) and “Toilet Paradiso” (2011) comprised string and golden necklaces with pendants made out of various commonplace items or foods—objects meant as ironic visual puns, to stand in for cultural talismans. More recently Rountree has followed this theme through installations of books in which he has folded the pages, robbing the volumes of their intended function and turning them into aesthetic objects.

    Recive a collage by mexican artist Sofia Táboas,

    From the serie "Botany Perversion", 2005
    Collage
    29.5 x 21

    Sofía Táboas investigates both natural and man-made space; how it is built and transforms, how it is thought about and perceived.

    Her most important exhibitions include: Piedra principio, Fundación RAC, Pontevedra, Spain (2014); Revisiones Superficies Límites, Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, Mexico City, Mexico (2011); Cinco jardines flotantes para cinco piedras, Casa de Lago Juan José Arreola, Mexico City, Mexico (2009); Azul Pacífico, Casa Barragán, Mexico City, Mexico (2008); Silvestre, Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, Mexico City, Mexico (2002). Additionally, she has participated in group exhibitions at the following institutions: FRAC Bourgogne in Dijon, France (2014); Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City (2013); Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) Long Beach, California, United States (2012); MUCA-UNAM (Museo Universitario de Ciencias y Arte), Mexico City, (2008); The Moore Building, Miami, United States (2002).
