Orbis Tertius -Hlaer-to-Jangr- is the tangible result of the exhaustive cataloging of an illusory universe, which has overflowed towards reality due to its weight. The exhibition borrows from the short story "Tlon, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius", by the Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges, creating a visual allegory that seeks to show the exact point where his world and TLaloC’s converge.

This immersive experience invites the viewer to dive into a world that seems to have devoured the construction of the gallery itself, even transgressing its limits. Its presence bleeds through to places outside of the gallery, sometimes even opening portals to spaces never seen before.

Orbis Tertius -Hlaer-to-Jangr- is TLaloC's fifth solo exhibition (the first in the United States) and is intended to contain the breadth of his interdisciplinary work. The exhibition contents make use of different processes and materials such as sculpture, illustration, animation, installation, neon and light artworks, which work together to create a multi-sensory and otherworldly experience.
