Humberto Duque studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, Karlsruhe, and currently lives and works in Mexico City. Duque¡¯s work is mostly centered on the bizarre and accidental space that emerges from the inconsistent and fragmented micro mise-en-scènes consisting of normal objects. In the installation Yield (2013) presented at Busan Biennale, Duque shows the relationship between the object and the space using trivial mundane things. Lemons are hung from the ceiling, and they are slowly rotating, making the space ambiguous and hallucinatory. The yellow lemons give the impression that they are floating in zero gravity space, they even give trompe l'oeil illusion of baseballs that are thrown in the air, revealing the immaterial space and transparency of post-kinetic art.
