Yolanda Gutiérrez

(Mexico, 1970)


Mexico City artist Yolanda Gutiérrez created a total of forty-five iron clouds, which she suspended from the ceiling of the Santa Fe Depot waiting room. Each of the clouds was covered in animal bone, delicately suggesting, according to the artist, a contemplation of the journey from life to death. The installation entitled Just Passing Through/De paso, composed of various sized clouds, suggests motion through space and life as constant movement.
