“Time Bomb: Extended Version”, Miami Design District, Miami, FL, December 2010
Time Bomb (Extended Version) will feature a vast sampling of Pepe Mar’s latest body of work. The exhibition will be comprised of Mar’s signature paper collage sculptures and works incorporating the introduction of brand new materials to Mar’s oeuvre, such as textiles, clay and gold leaf. The works become an all-encompassing and energetic environment/ installation where time is warped and viewers are met with figures constructed from signifiers of the past, present and future. A monument-like sculpture of one of Mar’s strange beings will be at the center of the installation. Through size and presence, this figure rules over a colorful assembly of Mar’s anthropomorphic sculptures. This assembly of sculptural figures will vary in size and media, reflecting the variety and colorful transmutations of the cast of beings in Mar’s work.
