While “Heavens and the Earth” the latest exhibition of the New York based Mexican artist Bosco Sodi is still showing at Blain Southern London, on 4 March, the artist unveiled a new monumental site-specific installation “Atlantes “ situated in the largely uninhabited area near to Puerto Escondido along the Oaxacan coast in Mexico, nearby to the artist’s foundation, Casa Wabi.


"Atlantes”, the wildly ambitious work of land art, consists of 102,000 clay bricks and it is the result of a collaboration of three art galleries: Blain Southern (London), Paul Kasmin (New York) and Galería Hilario Galguera (Mexico).
