Untitled (corner), 2017. This work is comprised of 3175.15 kilograms of carefully folded second hand clothing. The piece utilizes all the colors received. It is 2.1 meters tall and 1.8 meters wide. The overall shape is that of a thick, free-standing, corner partition. The color vertically transitions from dark to light and the back again. Inside the corner of the structure, shirt sleves, pant legs, ties etc.. emerge to form bridge-like apendages. These elements express the human need to make connections, and symbolize the idea that we are all one people. Relates to an early work seen Here

Am I Really All the Things That Are Outside Of Me?, 2009

Approximate Size:
7′ x 3′ x 3′ (H x W x D)

Materials:
Second-hand clothing, wood & steel

Description:
A portrait of Joaquin Trujiilo, comprised of carefully folded and stacked second-hand clothing. Each garment is categorized by hue and crisscrossed around a central spine. The order is chosen at random.

This piece was created for the show “Homesick” at the Carnegie Art Museum. All the clothing was provided by Joaquin Trujiilo (half of the curatorial team Trujillo/Paumier) and his family. Collecting 900 lbs of clothing is a heroic effort, not to mention that both of them also folded with me for several days! Joaquin even recruited his sisters Mago and Gloria to help which is significant because they are tireless and super detail oriented. Much thanks to the museum staff as well.
