Artists projects

Silvia Gruner, The Middle of the Road, inSITE94.

After her initial residency in the region, Mexico City artist Silvia Gruner was drawn to working directly on the border fence. She chose a stretch of the fence running along the residential neighborhood of Colonia Libertad in Tijuana. Entitled 'The Middle of the Road/La mitad del camino', the installation consisted of more than 100 replicas of the Aztec goddess Tlazolteotl in a birthing position on metal stools, mounted directly onto the border fence. The goddess suggests fertility, a point of passage—an entering through the ritual of birth where life is being recycled or regenerated.

Video exerpts taken from Sarah Minter's exhibition video made for The Midle of the Road (1994).

Duration: 26 sec.
