Disassembled: Jaw-dropping Art Installations by Damián Ortega

Published May 16, 2016

Mexican artist Damián Ortega creates powerful visual metaphors with his disassembled and suspended art installations.

“Damián Ortega’s work explores specific economic, aesthetic and cultural situations and, in particular, how regional culture affects commodity consumption. He began his career as a political cartoonist and his art has the intellectual rigour and sense of playfulness often associated with his previous occupation.

In ‘Cosmic Thing’ (2002), one of his most celebrated works, Ortega disassembled a Volkswagen Beetle and re-composed it piece by piece, suspended from wires in mid-air, in the manner of a mechanic’s instruction manual. The result was both a diagram and a fragmented object that offered a new way of seeing the ‘people’s car’ first developed in Nazi Germany but now produced en masse in his native Mexico.”
