The Night We Broke a Vase is a Solo Window Installation by Javier Jasso, opening on September 24th. The show will be in the windows of Co-Prospeerity until October 16th.
Turning memory into sculpture, Javier uses materials as associations to his surroundings. Wood, bricks, and ceramic, both collected and handmade, represent what his family experienced during his childhood, when they used to live in Guadalajara, MX.
The work tries to locate ideas of memorialization and architecture within real. In an effort to engage the notion of “domestic” and the paradox of stability, Javier brings three co-existing realities he has experienced in his childhood; domestic (home) environment, the instability of displacement, and homelessness, events he still witnesses year after year in Chicago.
