From a cave we crossed the universe
we visited bronze stars and clay worlds .
Sculptures forged in the furnace of your body
for to lose the reason in your arms.


Hilario Lalo Ortega builds machines that arise from questions and reflections related to: life cycle, work, joy, absurdity, open, hurt, rotate, renovate and exhaustion. He seeks a dialogue between the land and the physical labor of the artist. In Ortega’s work, a relationship exists between the mechanisms, the viewer (or user) and the land. The development of these relationships requires a system of exhaustive testing and validation between purpose and destruction. A “breaking point” where systems and people can change, when everything is magic and everything is possible.
