Muro (Wall): Video documentation by Bosco Sodi

For his first public performative installation in London, Mexican artist Bosco Sodi built a wall, 2 meters high by 8 meters long, in the forecourt of The National Theatre on London’s South Bank. A part of Art Night, an event curated by the Hayward Gallery on July 7, 2018, Muro was made up of 1600 clay bricks, fabricated in Mexico with the help of local craftsmen, and individually signed by the artist.
