Artist's Works

Ruben Ochoa’s monumental sculptural interventions inside the gallery thematize the disruption of space. They entangle the viewer, dealing with the social, political and ecological dimensions of construction and urban development, through the use of rough construction materials such as metal, concrete and wood. Ochoa recontextualizes and deconstructs “ready-made materials” to invent a sculptural language with strong architectural awareness. His work continuously shows an involvement in the tension between natural landscape and built environment.

Combining new drawings with two new monumental sculptural works, Ochoa creates a special work group, radically disrupting the spaces of PAC.
