Cosmic Thing (2002)

Cosmic Thing by Damian Ortega , is an extended and humorous meditation on one of Mexico's most potent symbols of Westernization and mass production: the Volkswagen Beetle. Ortega's work explores the political and cultural currency found in everyday objects and images especially as they relate to his native Mexico.

These works continue Damián's participation in a history of satire stretching through DaDa, political cartooning, and conceptual art.
