Description

“Yellow Cylinder Containers” (2020-2021)

“In my practice, I work with a theme that moves in and out of time and perishability. I focus on materials and putting a permanent mark on these materials and our time. My work displays traces and marks that show an attempt on perpetual action.

The cylinders deal with putting yet another permanent mark on something that is already man-made, disposed of, and should have vanished. The cylinders are painted and bent old steel plates, bolted together and embossed with angle grinder drawings showing my own attempt to create a permanent mark in our time, an attempt which I expect slowly will keep on changing in degradation by time.

The work as a plant container and thereby container of something living is about the contrast between the man-made and more permanent and the naturally degradable.”

About the designer


I have no formal education, but have been creating more than ten years. My work is conceptual and I approach it using many different materials from recycled metal to flora, creating both sculptures, paintings and showcase objects, always focusing on the subject of time and degradability. In my work, I try to visualize the fear of insignificance, loss of control and degradability. My pieces are contemporary reminders that everything is on loan.

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.
