Melissa's Pick
ArtList_2

Located in one of PAMM’s four project galleries dedicated to site-specific works, Nicolas Lobo’s The Leisure Pit is a mixed-media installation that playfully explores the toxicity of private leisure activities as they intersect with cultural, technological, and corporeal systems of consumption. Consisting of large circular concrete sculptures cast within a swimming pool, forms float effortlessly while carefully balanced within the space. Each circular sculpture reveals surprising traces of on-site experimentation, including castings of French fries, shrimp fossils, pool tiles, and flip-flops emblazoned with tropical imagery. Panels consisting of stretched XXXL cotton blend T-shirts treated with chlorine line the walls of the exhibition. Gazing upward, you will see an etching made directly onto the museum gallery’s concrete walls through the application of undiluted hydrochloric acid, a chemical typically used to balance pool water. These designs not only mimic designs typical in a pool, but echo motifs of empires past. Leisure Pit speaks directly to the city where it was created, as Miami’s promise of a tropical paradise has led to economic booms, as well as spectacular busts. Lobo’s installation gives form to imagined future sediment of a dystopian pleasuredome, slowly sinking into the sea.
