Whats up?!


In Luis Alonso Sánchez's paintings tar, material from the boarder between the United States of America and Mexico, sand and other substances from his birthplace the border town of Tijuana come together in linear gestures, expression of locomotion, as well as motion of the body through space and terrain.

A package arrives at my house. I just came out of the shower. The DHL postal worker hands me the package and we laugh as I am just wearing a towel. Now the package is standing in the middle of my gallery for a week or so - untouched but not unregarded.

I am thinking: "What is all the fuss about - about this border between Mexico and the U.S.? As I know from conversations with Luis, people are crossing the border to the U.S. regularly - to work or to buy things. This package, which is now standing in front of me, took almost less than a week to arrive here. Where is this boarder everyone is so hysterical about?"
