Due date: September 2016. Publisher's description: Mexican multimedia artist Gabriel de la Mora (born 1968) is best known for constructing visual works from obsolete found objects such as eggshells and discarded shoes. De la Mora describes these objects that have outlived their usefulness as caches for historical information about everyday life. In his exhibition at The Drawing Center, De la Mora presents an installation of 55 pairs of found speaker screens. Each screen is imprinted with an inscription created by the dust and air that circulated through the speaker screen during its useful life recording the cadence of countless voices, advertisements, news broadcasts, soap operas, football games and music, as well as noise, interference and silence. This volume accompanies De la Mora's Drawing Center presentation and features images of the installation and essays on his work.
