Clockshop is pleased to present Pansa del Publico, a site-based sculptural project by artist Eddie Rodolfo Aparicio at Los Angeles State Historic Park.

Sunday 5/2 to Sunday 7/25
8am to 8pm
1245 N Spring St, Los Angeles
https://clockshop.org/event/pansa-del-publico

Pansa del Publico is both a sculptural object and functional beehive oven inspired by the artist’s Salvadoran roots, the Zanja Madre, and the Ceiba tree. Beehive ovens are one of the oldest traditions in Central America and often serve as the main cooking source and a hub for community connections in rural areas of El Salvador. The inner layer of the oven is made of bricks, echoing the construction of the Zanja Madre, the original aqueduct that brought water to the nascent Pueblo De Los Angeles. The sculpture is also covered with a coat of fired and glazed ceramic thorns similar to those found on the trunk of young Ceiba trees, the most sacred tree of the ancient Maya, and which are native to Central, South America, and West Africa.

In this work, the artist centers his own family's history, the strength of collective organization, and a material investigation that draws from the deepest well of indigenous technology to shift the object away from the modernist conception of the supremacy of form as a universal given.

Pansa del Publico is funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and is part of a programmatic collaboration with Occidental College’s Oxy Arts, an initiative that brings together community, artists and cultural projects through socially conscious dialogue and engagement. During weekends in June and July a number of public activations will take place, amplifying Pansa del Publico's focus on collective action by inviting community members to share stories, food, and experiences together.

This project is part of WE RISE (Why We Rise), a month-long initiative that encourages wellbeing and healing through art, connection and community engagement. More at https://whywerise.la/werisela

Happy #EarthDay! Today we want to shed light on the wildlife who lost their habitat when the Los Angeles River was paved in 1938. Among the many species of fish and birds that have not returned to the area, the California steelhead trout is one of the species that verges on extinction. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Steelhead trout used to inhabit many of the rivers surrounding Los Angeles, including the Ventura River, and were sources of food for people and animals in the area. Not only this, but these fish were integral to maintaining the ecosystem of Los Angeles.

In a recent effort to revive the population of flora and fauna in the paved river, biologists and engineers have found that by reintroducing fish like the steelhead, the return of other animals such as the grey wolf, the bald eagle, and the California golden bear would also be revived.

The Los Angeles River Fish Passage and Habitat Structures Design Plan aims to repair the river and the ecosystems destroyed by the brutal concrete that now covers the riverbed. The biggest issue the steelhead face is the speed at which the concretized river flows, it being too fast to allow any fish to rest and develop.

We hope that the movement’s great efforts will succeed with the aid of biologists and engineers (pictured) who prioritize the preservation of natural ecosystems.

Clockshop is thrilled to announce the launch of our second site based installation at Los Angeles State Historic Park, Pansa del Publico by artist Eddie Rodolfo Aparicio that opens Sunday, May 2 and runs through June 25.⁠

The piece is both a sculptural object and functional beehive oven inspired by the artist’s Salvadoran roots, the Zanja Madre, and the Ceiba tree.⁠ In this work, the artist centers his own family's history, the strength of collective organization, and the wisdom of indigenous technology to activate public space at a time when so much is in flux and people are in need of healing through communal connection. Eddie Rodolfo Aparicio is a Clockshop Open Call awardee. This project is in part funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation.⁠

This project is part of WE RISE, a month-long initiative that encourages wellbeing and healing through art, connection and community engagement. #WeRiseLA #WhyWeRise
