Mobile sculptures for public space

Award XXI International Biennial of ART

Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia

Colectivo Rodrigo N. Albornoz & Cristina Flores



The work has the purpose to activate the public space through mobile sculptures that refer to ambulatory 'carts' which are normally forbidden in public space within the first ring of the city. The 'carts' -made out of metal, plastics, weals, awnings- were located within the first ring of the City Center of Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia. The source of the idea arises in response to the increment of informal labour and the latest confrontations between street sellers and the police. 'Deambulando' is a work that responds to the increase in unemployment, discrimination and the constant over-adaptation of our countries of the Global South to neoliberal policies. The sculpture is in the colours of the Bolivian flag. Declared by Evo Morales the first Plurinational, Multipolar and Decolonial State in South America.
