Description

“Resting Sail” (2020) lays dormant, yet sways like the surface of the nightly sea. This delicately structured, hand-woven textile is composed much like the fabric of the oceans today: organic material intimately adjoined with engineered fibres. In a moment of contemplation, the future of this delicate web is under review.

The textile blends ancient wool and linen with contemporary kevlar and carbon. Furthermore, woven into the work are optical fibres typically used in underwater communication cables, as well as polyamide, used widely in fishing nets known to be the biggest plastic polluters of the ocean.

Similarly to traditional sails, the piece is constructed by way of the sturdy twill weave, yet unlike functional sails, “Resting Sail” is woven loosely. Winding threads like trade routes, its delicate structure acts as an inhibition and the quest is pulled to a halt. Instead of voyaging in search of new, untapped resources for the benefit of the blue economy, here is an invitation to pause and reroute.

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.
