El round nuestro de cada día: general view of "boxers" in ring
Our Daily Rounds
Manolo Escutia's inSITE97 work, "El round nuestro de cada día/Our Daily Rounds," consisted of four monumentally scaled boxing figures in the style of traditional small wooden Mexican "thumb toys." Made to be fully operable by the viewer, the boxers were installed at the Palenque (cock-fighting pit) in Playas de Tijuana. In a statement about the work, Escutia referred to the endless fighting humans engage in, against the struggles of daily life, others, and the self. His work presented the stage for confrontation, but left it to the viewer to either realize victory or admit defeat. --inSITE97
