Guatemalen artist Dario Escobar is known for his sculptural installations which explore the recontextualization of objects, particularly sports-related ones. From chopped bats to rooms filled with serpentile bicycle tires, or hanging sculptures of worn soccer balls to reconfigured skateboards, Escobar’s work takes the ordinary object and metamorphosizes their form and meaning.
