Sweet Equity: A Conversation with Ruben Ochoa
by Sandra Wagner
Crooked Under the Weight, 2009. Exhibition at SITE Santa Fe. From a public intervention mounted on freeway walls to undulating poles mimicking birds in flight, Ruben Ochoa’s sculptures and installations capture movement, transition, and formal beauty using raw construction materials-everything from wooden pallets to concrete and rebar. Deconstructing these ordinary elements, he comments on geopolitical, economic, and social issues affecting the world, often using the city of Los Angeles as a case study. Ochoa’s site-specific projects have been shown from Berlin to New York, appearing at the Venice Biennale, the Whitney Biennial, and SITE Sante Fe. His sculptures are also featured in a variety of collections, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Pérez Art Museum in Miami, and the Whitney Museum of American Art...see the entire article in the print version of September's Sculpture magazine.
