Noé Piña, Collapsing Ladder

About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

Noé Piña's most recent work has been inspired by the concept of balance, of counterpoise "a factor, force, or influence that balances or neutralizes another." He works with steel, welding and found materials used in construction, using terracotta bricks, nails, and wood fragments to create sculptures and installations that address the complexities of maintaining balance, from personal to social to economic. Noé explores the fragility, the precariousness in things, nature, and systems and how the forces of pressure and stress remain in or produce balance. Noé's installations display an environment that is at once an environment of graceful balance and crude counterbalance, thus a sense of tension. The result is an anticipation of a disaster, the expectancy of a cataclysmic fall that then must only give in to growth. Through his video projections, he reveals the catastrophic result of the pieces when they collapse as Noé removes their source of balance, stress, and weight - that typically being the bricks.
