Bosco Sodi: Elemental was a solo exhibition by the Mexican artist at the Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli. Curated by Dakin Hart, the exhibition featured bodies of work which resonated with the museum’s building and its collection of 50,000 pre-Hispanic objects that Diego Rivera amassed during his lifetime.
Rivera's museum contains an impressive survey of what man is capable of fashioning from the earth. Known for his use of crude, raw materials, Sodi’s sawdust paintings, volcanic rocks and clay cubes sculptures are not just products of earth but the presence of the earth itself, reaching outside history to something more fundamental. As Dakin Hart notes, ‘the only thing they contain is earth; they are vessels for and of their own substance.’
