La fiesta de las balas [Festival of Bullets], 2011


Three steel and bulletproof glass structures with 300 bullet impacts, and sound. Each structure height: 220 cm.

Shooting (50 shots of 9 mm pistol, 100 of 12-gauge shotgun, 150 of 7.62 mm assault rifle) was done using statutory guns of law enforcement forces, referring to the growing force power needed to confront organized crime. Audio corresponds to the actual sound of those shootings. The title and the amount of shots are references to a book from the times of the Mexican Revolution: El águila y la serpiente (1926), written by Martín Luis Guzmán.
