Description

Conceived as textile pottery, “A rope in the shape of a vessel” reflects on form and matter, on the power of the abstract image of the object, which remains in our memory irrespective of the material with which it is made. During the creative process, the qualities of the object and its materiality are explored, while looking for new plastic possibilities of the cotton rope.

“A rope in the shape of a vessel” claims the use of a humble material and a simple process, while exploring its potential. With a single repeated stitch and delicate hand gestures, the pieces are molded in a process that reminds us of the ceramic coil technique. By joining the rope, the thread leaves its trace, creating a texture on the vessels surface.

Each vessel is unique and different due to the handmade process. Designed and made by Cristina Vallejo.

About the designer


ELSUR is a furniture and product brand founded in 2014 by Cristina Vallejo. Interested in the connection between humans and objects, her designs explore new possibilities of uses, methods, materials and shapes, having the Spanish culture as an inspiration. Every product created is an unique piece, made partially or entirely by hand, in collaboration with local craftsmen or by herself. Moving between design, crafts and art, each project is conceived with a different approach, with which to tell a story through the object itself that lasts in our memory. At ELSUR we support a contemporary design that combines craftsmanship and technology to manufacture one-of-a-kind, durable and of great quality furniture and objects. The work at ELSUR is complemented by the participation in exhibitions, to mention \"VIII International WTA Biennial of Contemporary Art \", Madrid 2019 , or specialized talks. ELSUR is reviewed in several publications, such as the 2019 guide \"Made in Madrid. Design and craftsmanship in the city\".

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
