The city as a theme becomes more evident in the works of Pilita Garcia. The bricolaged buildings that populate her collages are a direct reference to informal economies and unplanned urbanisation common to most Latin American cities. These self-contained cityscapes seem to point at the growing process of privatisation of public spaces over the past decades, which increasingly creates new borders within the urban fabric.
