Object Description: Gonzalo Fonseca’s fascination with history led him to spend time traveling through Latin America, the Middle East, and Europe to see the excavated remains of ancient cities. "Graneros III" suggests the experience of the modern visitor confronting such archaeological sites. The unexplainable architectural features may be puzzling, but their mystery captures our imagination. Fonseca enhances the need to engage directly with the piece by providing movable objects that can be placed in different areas of the work—if one only had access and permission from the curator. Alas, the piece must remain a tempting yet remote enigma.
