Parte o Pedazo is an allegory that invites the viewer to contemplate, first of all, the complex relationship that is established between nature and industrialization in the context of modernity in Mexico. Smith revisits an aesthetic that refers directly to the golden age of Mexican cinema -from Gabriel Figueroa to Ruben Gámez-, a period during which the iconography that represents the country both inside and outside its borders was established.
