Proyecto H inaugurates for the first time in the gallery the exhibition of the Mexican artist Jorge Yázpik where a selection of his most recent sculptural work will be shown. His sculptures of stone, obsidian, jade, wood, clay, porcelain, gold, and silver demonstrate how the artist experiments and tests almost all kinds of materials.
Jorge Yázpik (Mexico City, 1955) began his professional studies at the San Carlos National School of Plastic Arts in 1977. His work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums in Mexico and abroad, both individually and collectively. In 1980 he participated in the First Biennial.
He has carried out various interventions in public spaces in Mexico City such as the thirty-six benches located in the Historic Center, the piece of volcanic rock located on the UNAM Campus at the access to the Faculty of Architecture, and a work composed of several concrete pieces located in the premises of the Industrial Design Postgraduate course at UNAM.
