Tired City, artist Jorge Macchi


‘Music Stands Still’ is a major exhibition at S.M.A.K. showing work by the Argentine artist Jorge Macchi.

‘He achieves maximum perception using a minimum of form: the viewer should not try to interpret the work, but simply to experience looking at it.’

In his work Tired City, Jorge Macchi moderates the multilayered citymap of Mexico and with that enhances the experience of the city. In difference to the common known analytic mono layered urban design drawings, Jorge Macchi cuts the unwanted layers out of the map. The result is a paper structure that, suffering by the absent parts, becomes a three dimensional object.
