Pasajes: Helen Escobedo es un tributo al legado artístico de Helen Escobedo (1934-2010). Bocetos, collages, apuntes y dibujos dan testimonio a la vitalidad de su creación escultórica, de sus instalaciones e intervenciones en espacios públicos, que marcaron su producción y que fueron abriendo brecha.

Este volumen reúne textos de la propia artista, así como ensayos de Rita Eder, Graciela Schmilchuk, José Emilio Pacheco, Néstor García Canclini, Angélica Abeyeira, Francisco Reyes Palma, Raquel Tibol y Jorge Alberto Manrique. A su ves, se muestran fotografías que ofrecen el registro de su trabajo, permitiendo conocer mucha de su obra efímera así como la extensión de su producción.

La primera parte del libro corresponde a la escultura monumental, con colores vivos así como los ambientes que realizó en espacios arquitectónicos específicos; la segunda sobre las instalaciones y su obra en papel; y por último los textos que refiere la vida y obra de Helen Escobedo.



This book on Helen Escobedo arose as a project by Irela Gonzaga and Amalia Benavides, who worked as her assistants for many years, to compile a catalogue of her work. They invited me to participate and we soon understood that the book would have to show the questions implicit in her work. Our aim was to show her lines of thought and the results derived from them.

In the first part, we present brightly colored monumental sculpture. There are, however, ohter aspects we feel are important, such as the settings she created in specific architectural spaces, which continue to be used and preserve that link between public space and an affective ambience that she always strove to balance.

The second part concerns installations and work in paper: collage, intervened photos and drawings that mirror her reflections on the city and monuments, ecological disasters and landscapes.

This book is primarily visual. We created different sections because we realized that many of her works are processes of transition and that her concerns are always linked to changes in the way we perceive the space around us.

We would like to think that this book pays testimony to her artistic work.
