Labor is pleased to present: Modern Moral Subject, Decorating the Pit, the third individual exhibition of Jorge Satorre in the gallery.
Jorge Satorre’s work is constructed from stories and chronicles that link multiple characters and scenarios, seeking to expose opinions that are rarely represented as revealing truths, resulting in stories ceasing to be linear and becoming new narratives. At times, the specificity of each of his projects is determined by the artist's collaboration with experts in different fields. And it’s through mediums such as drawing and sculpture that Satorre turns oral testimonies into visual registers.
This exhibition takes as a starting point the history of the site where LABOR is currently located. Satorre traces the purchase of the land in 1946, being part of El Rancho de la Providencia which was originally grounds for mines of tepetate and sand. The first house was designed by the architect Enrique del Moral and completed in 1948 where he lived for thirty years. Almost six decades later it was sold, modified and used as an architectural firm. Later, in 2009, it became a gallery.
