In his sculptures and layered installations, Carlos Sandoval de León (b. 1975, Sabinas Hidalgo, Nuevo León, Mexico) explores the poetics of material culture, drawing out the concealed labor and socioeconomic dimensions of care embedded in everyday objects. For his exhibition at ICA Miami, Sandoval de León has created the site-specific, large-scale architectural installation Untitled (2019). The installation incorporates both new and existing sculptures, in which the artist deconstructs, repurposes, manipulates, and hybridizes raw, industrial materials with found objects, incorporating bricks, earth, discarded clothes, volcanic pearls, soap, bulletproof plexiglass, pizza boxes, armadillo shells, and souvenirs, among other materials. With its historically and psychologically charged materials, the work of Sandoval de León catalyzes both individual associations among viewers and broader questions of how objects communicate the histories of those who make, use, and inhabit them.
