Rafa Esparza & Timo Fahler
TSO Border Hybrid, 2017
Adobe from Marfa and Ojinnaga
Limited edition of 10
TSO Border Hybrid is a collaborative limited edition by artists Rafa Esparza and Timo Fahler. In an edition of 10, this work was developed while the two artists were working together on Ballroom’s fall 2017 exhibition, Tierra. Sangre. Oro.
Each piece is handmade from adobe molded into a cinderblock form made with earth from Marfa and the neighboring Mexican city of Ojinaga.
During their residency in Marfa the artists became interested in Donald Judd's practice of combining dissimilar building materials – cement mortar with adobe bricks. For this edition Esparza and Fahler explored their own conflation of discrete building practices by creating a conventional concrete form with adobe.
