Casa de los Uros embodies the natural elegance of the sea foam, while maintaining the traditional technique and shape of the Uros islands houses. The structure seemingly arises from the ground as if it were one with the earth.
The Armory Show, Times Square Alliance, y Galería Nina Menocal are presenting Casa de los Uros, a lighting sculpture by Grimanesa Amoros during Armory Arts Week at Duffy Square.
The Public Art Program in collaboration with The Armory Show exhibit four large sculptures by Grimanesa Amorós, Tom Otterness, David Kennedy Cutler, and Niki de Saint Phalle between March 1-7, 2011. The exhibition is made possible with the support of the Rockefeller Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and Artlog.com.

Preciosa Burbuja (2009) is a silicone and mixed media lighting sculpture with the dimensions of 7 inches aeight x 8 inches adith x ½ inches depth. Precious metals, like gold and silver, were once the basis of all economic transactions. Now we are at the mercy of artificially inflated markets and systems of exchange. The accepted value of goods or services is no longer certain and concrete; everything is uncertain and ephemeral. We are engorged by speculation and illusion, like implanted silicone. Our desires rise like heaving breasts, and upon reaching climax they quickly deflate.
