delicate erosion, is a sculptural labyrinth installed by molo at CAB (Centro de Arte Caja de Burgos) a contemporary art museum in the medieval city centre of Burgos, Spain. The narrow winding passageways of the labyrinth are inspired by the intimate scale of the streets in the medieval city, and the experience of disorientation and discovery that a visitor feels in navigating these pathways. As in the medieval streets the experience of molo’s labyrinth is defined by the intimate physicality and texture of its walls. The walls for CAB, made from light weight textiles and air, have been cut into with trimming shears, eroding their crisp geometry to expose the combination of strength and delicacy in the flexible honeycomb structure.
