Location: Gallery Jimena Carranza, Mexico City
Project status: constructed
The intervention in the patio of the gallery Jimena Carranza, was a little permanent installation that we constructed with the support of Subject Gallery and the gallery of Jimena Carranza. The intention was to reconfigure the space with a simple gesture; the reflection. The patio of the gallery is a backyard of a 1940s building of 6 floors. Due to the very reduced area and the surrounding of other buildings, there is a sensation of a more stretched patio than it really is. While working with the reflection, by using gold colored aluminum panels, we could generate spatial amplitude without reconfiguring the patio physically and in the same time there is a playful interaction between art and receiver. The Hedonism in our society becomes stronger every time and we wanted to explore this condition with our piece in a very direct way. Providing the reflection so that the persons can see inside the piece, their own reflection and the reflection from the others behind. Seeing and being the view through a golden filter.
