The artist carefully reconstructed this image from a tourist postcard that his father sent him during a European tour in the 1950s. By looking through the small lens, we are invited into a scene that is arrested in time and strangely evocative of a melodramatic movie or novel. Gordín's work explores memory and parallel realities through small shifts in perception. Indeed, the brightly colored box of Rotterdam Central Station is not unlike a magic trick that takes us back in time or deep into someone else's personal memories.", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Purchased with funds provided by Fundación Arte BA, Buenos Aires, and contributions from the Blanton Latin American Circle, 2006", "Copyright_Type" : "", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "sculpture", "Creation_Place2" : "Argentinean", "Department" : "Latin American Art", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2006.326.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2006.326.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2006.326.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2006.326.tif", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "4253", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2006.326 detail.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2006.326 detail.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2006.326 detail.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2006.326 detail.tif", "IsPrimary" : "0", "_SurrogateID" : "4260", "Image_Type" : "Transparency", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2006.326 interior view.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2006.326 interior view.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2006.326 interior view.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2006.326 interior view.tif", "IsPrimary" : "0", "_SurrogateID" : "4261", "Image_Type" : "Transparency", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 19325, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/19325", "Disp_Access_No" : "2009.13", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "1992/2006", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "", "_Disp_End_Date" : "", "Disp_Title" : "Corpus Delicti", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "Corpus Delicti", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Jac Leirner", "Sort_Artist" : "Leirner, Jac", "Disp_Dimen" : "", "Disp_Height" : "", "Disp_Width" : "", "Dimen_Extent" : "varies with installation", "Medium" : "Three boarding passes, two ashtrays, cutlery, and metal cord", "Support" : "", "Disp_Medium" : "Three boarding passes, two ashtrays, cutlery, and metal cord", "Info_Page_Comm" : "In the early 1990s, Jac Leirner collected objects from her many airplane trips, including napkins, cutlery, baggage tags, boarding passes, ear plugs, and ashtrays. She then ordered these objects into a series of works called "Corpus Delicti," a legal term in Latin meaning the concrete evidence of a crime. This string of connected objects functions as a travelogue of Leirner’s journeys. It also documents her struggle to quit smoking and her obsessive and sometimes illegal acquisition of materials, as in the case of the ashtrays and cutlery. For Leirner, the works “convey a history, with the idea of transgression imprinted on them.” They are removed from one circuit and are consecrated by another, changing from airplane accoutrements to works of art.", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Susman Collection, 2009", "Copyright_Type" : "", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "sculpture", "Creation_Place2" : "Brazilian", "Department" : "Latin American Art", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2009.13.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2009.13.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2009.13.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2009.13.tif", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "6068", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] }, ] }
