Description

LO and BEHOLD is a series of seven unique ceramic tableaus in porcelain.

A tableau is a snapshot that holds the entire narrative. The ceramic tableau tells the story of how it became. In that way, it is a stage for a performance that has taken place in the kiln. The result balances between careful calculation and a loss of control. The dynamic shaping is stopped when the heat is switched off, leaving an imprint of the processes that we are intimately defined by – growth, decay, gravity, attraction, and adaption.

LO and BEHOLD are mind images of the horror of losing control, but also the relief that comes with losing grip and letting go.

About the designer


Signe Fensholt is a Copenhagen based ceramic artist. In her work she leaves part of the creative process to the magic of the ceramic materials and the natural forces in the ceramic kiln. Like a choreographer she sets the stage, give her instructions and let go. The transformation of soil and dust into sparkling surfaces and crisp shapes is still visible as traces of creation. The performative aspect of ceramic materials is a focal point in the way she works as well as in the final results. She works in the interface between design and art keeping a reference to a shape or a function that we easily recognize but with another agenda than finding a solution for a practical need. She graduated 2018 from The Royal Danish Academy of Design. Since her graduation she has been selected for major exhibitions and has received several grants for her artistic practice.

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.
