A temporary commission for the Museo Jumex, Michael Lin’s Mariposa B1-09 is a hand-painted floor that extends in excess of 1,300 square meters across the museum’s plaza and through the building’s ground floor. The work is based on a traditional tablecloth design found in Mexico that echoes similar textiles from the artist’s native Taiwan. The painting acts as a physical and metaphorical stage on which the interplay of popular cultural with art and its institutions is displayed.
