A project of the Mexican Fernanda Canales, this almost rectangular installation organized around three patios of varying size engages in a dialogue of opposite, with the Tamayo Contemporary Art Museum, a 1979-1981 work of Teodoro González de León and Abraham Zabludovsky. The museum comprises volumes; the pavilion, planes. The former projects itself outward; the latter, inward. One is massive, large, and rough, and asserts its presence; the other is light, small, and smooth, and interacts with the landscape.
Situated beside the museum, the roofless pavilion 6 meters wide and 25 long has two entrances. It is black on the outside, while the inner surfaces are mirrors that multiply images in a chain of reflections.
