Clockshop is pleased to announce that sculptor Beatriz Cortez will unveil new work for the #BowtieProject this spring. Cortez’s new commission, Tzolk’in, is a sculpture envisioned in two parts: one installation will take place at the Bowtie, and the other at the Hammer Museum as part of #MadeinLA2018. -
Both sculptures will have a similar shape, but will be installed in vastly different contexts that each come with their own sets of protections, risks, and opportunities. These locations are symbolic of the different realities that exist simultaneously within our city. -
Tzolk’in is modeled on a 260-day Mayan agricultural calendar, and includes a structure with two gears that move in a hypocycloid motion, marking time through movement that is at once circular and linear. -
We look forward to sharing more details about Cortez’s project and related public programming later this spring.
