Paola Dávila prints unique cyanotypes onto paper. She signs each work on the reverse. Every print comes directly from the artist's studio.
For this picture, we recommend book-mounting the print in a passepartout and framing in a white box. This method gives visual priority to the image and yet fits stylishly into most interiors. Other options are of course available. All our frames are handmade by one of the UK's leading framing workshops, and are constructed to museum standards. Please note that prices do not include local taxes, framing or shipping.
We aim to ship works that are unframed within 2 weeks, and within 6 weeks for works that are framed. We always aim to get your print to you as quickly as possible! However, please note that the times above may vary depending on the work. For exact timings, please get in touch. We ship all works from the UK. Please note that prices listed above do not include framing or shipping.
Artwork In Detail
“Juegos started from an interest in investigating, through photography, the different planning initiatives that have shaped the public space of Mexico City. At first, my research focused on playgrounds, squares and gardens, many of which exist in a state of modern ruins, showing a profound gap between planning policies and the complex geographical, material and social realities of the sites. In the process of visiting and studying these spaces, I began to question my own use of the city: how I travel through it, how my transits are determined by its ordering policies, how a poor transport system turns distances into seemingly infinite time spans, how I spend more time commuting than at home, or even how my presence is more active at work than in the studio.
It was thus that, by means of a phone app, I began to rigorously map my daily use of the city and the spaces that I inhabit. This tool made it possible to record movements, changes of direction and decisions made during the journeys. Each trace, each displacement, allowed me to consider the city as a performance space, each day as a new possibility of reading the city, my movement as a way of reading myself, my repeated rituals. The city as an infinite way of being interpreted: playing the city.” – Paola Dávila
