The Sinkhole project is the result of a collaboration between Liliana Ovalle and Colectivo 1050º. The black vessels stand as a representation of sinkholes, a portrayal of those voids that emerge abruptly from the ground, dissolving their surroundings into an irretrievable space. Each vessel is suspended in a wooden frame, alluding to a cross section of the ground that reveals the hidden topographies.

The clay shapes, based in local archetypes for utilitarian pottery, are crafted by local ceramists from Tlapazola, Oaxaca using ancestral techniques and skills that are struggling to find a place in the contemporary global landscape.
