Photography and sculpture archive series developed for Lost Sculptures, a proposal for 8 lost fragments of 2 broken sculptures which history disappeared without trace at a Mexico city’s XVI century convent (now a Contemporary Art Museum, Museo ExTeresa), composed by a comparative study in order to analyze similar losses of body parts in sculptures at the Acropolis Museum of Athens, Pergammon Museum, Schlossmuseum, Alberta Museum, Louvre in Paris, among many other global heritage institutions. This study allowed to construct the new fragments of the two damaged and forgotten colonial sculptures in Mexico city, while shaping a nonlinear, anachronic relations of repetition, fragmentation, and construction of human History.
