Quisqueya Henríquez

(Cuba, 1966)


Installed in the basement of the Children’s Museum/Museo de los Niños in downtown San Diego, Quisqueya Henríquez’s piece presented the viewer with an ordered, anti-labyrinth experience. Constructed from cardboard-covered wooden poles, the grid was built scaled to the human body to give a greater sensory impact as the viewer navigated the room. The experience was an attempt to balance the order of the grid with a sense of chaos derived from viewers’ inability to easily decipher the intention of the installation.
