Museo Laboratorio de Arte Alameda : LAA Pollinator Garden: Ento Motel
April 2022 - April 2023
Ento Motel is the first residence of the LAA Pollinating Garden public program, 2022 edition, a project that emerges from the crossroads between sculpture, ecodesign and ecosystem preservation.
Designed and conceptualized by the multidisciplinary artist Martín Levêque and the botanical collective MACONDO, it reuses wood donated by Taller Nacional to build a habitable proposal designed specifically for the pollinating species that frequent the LAA atrium. The 5 sculptures that make it up are a kind of refuge whose shapes evoke -in a reflective act- the frenetic urbanism of the metropolis of Mexico City and the constructions that have covered the gray floor with an aggressive concrete, which does not allow the infiltration of water into the earth and limits the growth of endemic plants, destroying the possibilities of fauna and flora to survive in this hostile context.
LAA Pollinating Garden: Ento Motel is organized by the Ministry of Culture of the Government of Mexico and the National Institute of Fine Arts and Literature, through the Alameda Art Laboratory (LAA), in collaboration with Martín Levêque, MACONDO and Taller Nacional.
