Descripción de la Exposición

Borrowing its enigmatic title from the words of Guillaume Apollinaire, The wheel bears no resemblance to a leg chronicles the making of a multilayered project by Mexican artist Erick Meyenberg (b. 1980, Mexico City). Working for two years with a local high school marching band in Mexico City, Meyenberg orchestrated a complex performance which took place throughout the capital and provokes a reflection on the pedagogical machinery of discipline, education, gender, and the state. Erick Meyenberg works at the intersection of drawing, collage, video, data analysis, and sound. La rueda no se parece a una pierna (The wheel bears no resemblance to a leg, 2016) is the end result of a long collaboration with members of the high school marching band Banda de Guerra Lobos at the Colegio Hispanoamericano in Mexico City. Meyenberg and the teenagers—together with curators, guest musicians, composers, choreographers, costume designers, and a video production team—cocreated the choreography and concomitant performances that took the band through some of Mexico City’s most emblematic and politically marked sites: the Plaza de Tlatelolco, where in 1968 striking university students clashed with the state; the Monument to the Revolution, commemorating the Mexican Revolution of 1910; and the shopping mall Centro Comercial Forum Buenavista, symbolizing Mexico’s embeddedness in transnational post-industrial capitalism.
