Lagos, estudios y residencias, Ciudad de México, México
August 30, 2018 – September 15, 2018
Flesh-toned coatings, geological textures, and uncanny shapes characterize Kristin Reger’s recent work. She stretches pantyhose containing raw clay and hangs theses bodies to define their shape. The works are fired and then embalmed with Reger’s own glazes. Acrylic, wax, textiles, and foam interact with these ceramic pieces, birthing a universe of organic objects.
The current exhibition displays a body of work created during the artist’s residency at Lagos. While the first month was almost entirely dedicated to glaze research, more than 120kg of clay were modeled during the second and almost 280kg will have become sculptures by the end of her residency, on September the 24th.
Apart from the studio, most works were made at Cerámica La Mejor, a ceramics factory on the second floor of Lagos’ building.
Lagos is a studio and residency space in Mexico City dedicated to the production and development of art projects and exhibitions. Kristin Reger is the third artist from its residency program. The artist has a background in textiles and fashion theory, is a current Ph.D. in Visual Arts candidate at UNAM, was born in Chicago and lives in Mexico City.
