Cristóbal Lehyt

 Piece of New York


In my kitchen in Chelsea, many years ago, I made a sugar sculpture.
I immersed it in resin and put it on my fire escape for a few weeks.
Then I sent what resulted to a show of contemporary art at the Museo Histórico Nacional (National Historical Museum) in Santiago, Chile.
It was installed on a table with historical objects and paintings, and has become part of the collection of the museum.
