"In his exhibition Destruktion, Cuban artist Alberto Alejandro Rodríguez takes ruins-fragments of real buildings or debris and discarded papers found within them-and constructs sculptures, architectural models of both the sites from which he gathered the materials and imagined landscapes. The exhibition title, a term used by Heidegger, made its way to Alejandro Rodríguez via the writings of Derrida, whose famed attention to the play of binary oppositions plays a role in the artwork: here, we find such an oscillation between absence and presence. Above all, Alejandro Rodríguez's project is invested in the imagination of ruin, exploring how images of destruction are constructed."  -- Robert R. Shane  (Brooklyn Rail)
