Description

“Standing Textile(s)” are built up, thread by thread, on a custom-made weaving loom. 3D-woven configurations are experimentally discovered on the spot, creating intriguing tactile volumes. The lack of support and hollowness might make them seem on the edge of breaking, but their open structures are strong and sturdy.

This new method of weaving allows for endless possibilities in shape, use of colour, and material and, therefore, in application. From brightly coloured, recycled plastic dividing walls to sound reducing lamps from paper yarn.

“Standing Textile(s)” arose from an experimental textile research, driven by the desire to bring textile into the interior in a different way than we are used to. The research consciously awards the value of artisanal textile production techniques, explores its unseen possibilities, and questions the use of textiles today.

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.
