This remnant fragment of the US|MX border wall is from the original 14 miles of primary fencing that was constructed between 1990 and 1993 from the Pacific Ocean to divide the two countries. The fence was constructed of 10 foot-high steel army surplus landing mats (M8A1) with the assistance of the Corps of Engineers and the California National Guard. The original landing mats were manufactured by the Syro Steel Company in Girard, Ohio in 1968 and were used during the Vietnam War. Each original steel mat measured 22 inches high x 12 feet long and were pieced and welded together to make the border wall.Read More

Como un secreto se seduce ... (Like a secret it seduces itself ...) is a mysterious and alluring work by Luis Gonzalez Palma. It belongs to the Artist's Hierarchies of Intimacy series from 2005, and is easy to love. Its brilliance is characteristically matched by its intended imperfections. This is a classic treatment of the artist's double-edged approach to the human experience. This elegant and opulent set of rooms is occupied by a solitary object, a bed. Usually a symbol of comfort, relaxation, sleep, or more intimate acts, this bed is split, and thus becomes a contradiction of itself. The tension in this work is curious; is it reconciling itself or entering a more permanent state? The answer lies with the viewer.Read More
