Luis Barragan-Ashes to Diamond Ring?

Artspace reports on American artist Jill Magid’s disinternment of 500 grams of Luis Barragan’s ashes to make a diamond ring in order to have his professional archives released. A very bizarre story and one realized with the full approval of the government of Jalisco and Barragan’s surviving relatives. She replaced the ashes with a 500 gram sculpture of a horse and also made votive rings currently on offer at the  Liste fair. -david sokolec
