Guest Artist 3
Mathias Goeritz (1915-1990) was a creator of aesthetics that left a permanent mark on the artistic development of our century. During his career, he inspired the world with a lyrical facet.
In 1968, flight plans for planes passed alongside Palacio
de los Deportes offering passengers the possibility to admire the Ursa Major constellation from a high.
Standing at 15 meters high, and arranged them the same as the stars in the constellation of the same name.
For this work of art, Goeritz constructed seven polyhedronic columns of concrete (from yellow to bright pink).
By using geometric and primary shapes, Goeritz succeeded in initiating a harmonic relationship between these and the shapes that were created as a result of the architectural project by the architects Félix Candela, Antonio Peiry and Enrique Castañeda Tamborell for Palacio de los Deportes.
