About the Program

Dina Gonzalez Mascaro's Rubble was inspired by architecture, urban changes, and machinery. For the past five years, she has been living in Vancouver, a changing city where the sites and sounds of "progress" are part of daily life. Perpetual construction and demolition are our landscape, as powerful as the mountains. We witness the demolition of the city we know to make way for a future city. The artist takes interest in the rubble, the demolition sites, the elements of architecture that have begun to disappear, and aims to reveal and preserve that which is not seen. By casting piles of rubble into resin, new columns are created from found elements of destroyed structures. By contextualizing these objects as art, their existence is an act of resistance.
