La corriente is one of her hanging installations. This evocation of a fleet of rustic palm tree pods boats was made expressly so that they would be reflected in the illuminated drop ceiling of the UNAM’s Museo Universitario de Ciencias y Arte, in which the boats appear to be floating on a lake, viewed from below. This combination of lyricism and material creativity is characteristic of Gutiérrez’s work as a sculptor.
