Constructing on Deconstructing

Borja + Toscani

Constructing on deconstructing explores the relationship between two cultures compressing into one uni-pop-culture. Enormous Mexican hand crafted piñatas will hang from the ceiling of the 9,000 squared feet inside a prominent venue during ArtPrize® . Pulling from the traditional 7-point piñata all across to the figurative characters; this installation is a hybrid of a piñata today. The audience is encouraged to take part in the art making process by actively hitting them. The released contents from the interior create a 2nd installation on its own. BREAKING SESSIONS Breaking three piñatas per sesión. Mon-Thursday: 6pm Fri-sat: 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, 7pm Sunday: 1pm, 3pm, 5pm

About Borja + Toscani

Carolina Borja and Amy Toscani have had an ongoing discussion about creating, destroying and art making. They are very excited to be collaborating and uniting our passion for craft, identity and urge for experimentation at ArtPrize. This project is made possible thanks to the ArtPrize Pitch Night Minneapolis.
