Adolfo Best Maugard, Manual of Drawing: Tradition, Renaissance and Evolution of Mexican Art 1923, page 151
The central piece in Ana Roldán's show at Dolores is a sculpture derived from the Butaca chair designed by Mexican architect Luis Barragán in 1945. The sculpture is accompanied by an unlimited series of gold-plated coconuts and drawings made after Maugard's manual from 1923. Arranged in sentence-like structures the objects speak of relations between the local and the universal, the object itself and the stories which the objects create.
Ana Roldán (Mexico, 1977) currently lives and works in Zurich. She graduated from the Hochschule der Künste Bern in 2003. Recent solo exhibitions include "Words to be Looked at, Objects to be Read" at Kunsthalle Arbon, "Observations on Modernity and Form" at KUNST Zurich and "As the Myth of the Hole" at annex14 in Bern.
