Jorge Pardo (b. 1963, Havana, Cuba) is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work trespasses the boundaries of sculpture to explore art-related disciplines such as architecture and design. His work employs a range of media to revisit the aesthetics of modernism and put it in a new light. Traditional and radical at the same time, Pardo's installations engage different forms and materials to challenge the notion of space and public utility. Jorge Pardo is represented by Neugerriemschneider, Berlin; Friedrich Petzel, New York; Haunch of Venison, London; Ghislaine Hussenot, Paris; Gio' Marconi, Milan; 1301PE, Los Angeles.
