Dissapear:

1 :  to pass from view

2 :  to cease to be :  pass out of existence or notice

 

The intention of this installation is to invite the audience to reflect and question their opinion regarding the recovery and disappearance of historical landmarks in the city of Tijuana.

PUERTA MÉXICO recovers a symbolic space through the material reduction of an object, and utilizes art as a tool to prevent the disappearance of historical spaces.
