Llave – Mateo López

MXN 5,000.00

Mateo López sent us a contour drawing of his studio’s key in NYC. A local locksmith in Mexico City interpreted the drawing producing an illegal key. It might open the door in Brooklyn — though we don’t know the exact address of Mateo’s studio. He is interested in taking the drawing beyond the two dimensional, using the gesture of drawing as a tool to design objects.

The key functions as a metaphor of the mysteries surrounding the artist’s studio and the creative process within it.

Mateo López`s work has been shown at The Drawing Center de Nueva York, Blueproject Foundation, Barcelona, and the Museo de Arte de la Universidad Nacional de Bogotá.
