Description

The day expired onto the lake’s smooth surface. The mirror of water welled up: Narcissus had smiled. He caught it in his hands and filled it with goodies, so they floated in the embrace of the sun.

The glassmakers’ ancient skill is required for the incredibly thin hand-blown cup, which makes the rays of light refract in a game of concave and convex surfaces, like the slight waves of a stream. As the tiny waves flow, so the cups are laid one into another.

About the designer


Tanja Pak achieved a master’s degree in art at the Royal College of Art, having graduated in industrial design from the Academy of Fine Art of the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, where she is now full professor, heading Glass and Ceramics department. She is creatively committed to sculpture, artistic spatial installations and design of functional glass objects. She exhibits worldwide. Her work is part of many collections and public spaces. She won artist residencies in studios and museums around the world, including The Corning Museum of Glass, Creative Glass Center of America, Pilchuck and Musée du Verre in France. She has received many international art and design awards, among them two Red Dot Honourable Mention and Arte Laguna special prize. Her work has been selected for the New Glass Review four times, and was among many important glass competition finalists, such as Kanazawa International Exhibition, European Glass Context and other juried or curated exhibitions. In her recent artworks, Tanja has been delving into feelings of solitude, and loneliness of the individual\'s inner world. She has been exposing the search for closeness, the fragile nature of interpersonal bonds and relationships, relating the flimsiness of our unity in the face of indivisibility when it comes to our integral whole. She works in her studio in Ljubljana.

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.
