Describing his work as "shaping space", Jorge Pardo has made work that moves freely across the notional disciplines of art, architecture and design throughout his over thirty-year career. His constructions range from a single light sculpture, to paintings, rooms or an assembly of buildings that combine all the individual elements of his artistic creation in the mode of a Gesamtkunstwerk.
His work contends with distinctions of private and public space, while calling to mind references as diverse as the Light and Space movement, Land art, modernist design and the color, flora and fauna of his home in Mérida, Mexico.
