Sofía Táboas

(Mexico, 1968)


Mexico City artist Sofia Táboas’s project, titled Double Take/Doble turno, was located in one of the hallways of the Casa de la Cultura in Tijuana. Táboas created a poetic installation that played with the light entering the hallway from windows at either end by breaking up the space with a minimal gesture in the form of delicate draperies of blue glass beads strung on barely visible strings. The effect was that of space being framed by cascading lined dots of blue that seemed to vanish when the visitor was looking from one end of the hallway to the other, and yet brought attention to the space and the quality of the light entering it.
