Black jacket, gray sweatshirt gathers observations written by Jorge Satorre in Mexico City's Bosque de Chapultepec one October day in 2019. Based on these texts, the artist made a series of 22 drawings over the course of four months, only referring to these written descriptions for guidance. Seven and a half hours of that day are represented in the drawings, with each image corresponding to twenty minutes. In addition to helping classify the vegetation, each section of the grid represents one minute's time. A couple appeared around 13:45 and left as it started to rain. This book is published by CRAC Alsace and ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ on the occasion of Jorge Satorre’s exhibition of the same name at CRAC Alsace.
