The sculptural work by Jose Dávila (Guadalajara, MX, 1974) performs a series of structural intuitions through the interaction of balance and gravity, these seemingly static compositions entail several physical processes that are necessary for objects to maintain their shape and to occupy space in a specific manner. Dávila's sculptures also perform a quest for the limits of the resistance of materials, and to achieve form as a consequence of the process. The history of Western sculpture becomes raw material for rendering new possibilities of transforming space and re-signifying objects. Human intervention and the material disposition of objects produce hybrid systems in which technique unfolds itself as a poetic dimension.
