Not so esoteric  In 2010, I went to Fortes Vilaça gallery to meet a friend who worked there. While waiting, I came across a strange creature in the backyard. It was a kind of giant monster, but for some reason its massive scale and weight weren’t intimidating. Instead, its fragile balance made it look harmless,

In the midst of the mælstrom of desires produced by imagination, one can make an analytic distinction between those that are achievable and others that, due to physical or moral conditions, turn into mere illusions. The exhibition El panorama, sobre todo si uno lo ve desde un puente, es prometedor [The view, especially if one looks at it from a

Dentro de la vorágine de deseos que produce la imaginación, se puede hacer una división analítica entre los que son posibles de realizar y los que, por razones físicas o morales, se convierten en meras ilusiones. La exposición El panorama, sobre todo si uno lo ve desde un puente, es prometedor forma parte del primer grupo. La artista Chantal Peñalosa

Proyectos Monclova Mexico City, Mexico 03/17/2016 – 04/23/2016

Anna Virnich’s artistic practice focuses on textile-based tableaus, incorporating found fabrics as well as new materials, which the artist stretches on wooden frames thus creating organic and almost painterly compositions that oscillate between transparency and density, foreground and background, agility and standstill. The tension between all those elements is crucial and it expresses itself not only within the composition of the

La práctica artística de Anna Virnich se enfoca en tableaus que utilizan como base textiles, incorporando telas encontradas así como nuevos materiales, que la artista monta en marcos de madera creando composiciones orgánicas, casi pictóricas, que oscilan entre la transparencia y la densidad, el primer y el segundo plano, la agilidad y la quietud. La tensión entre los elementos es

The Solaris ocean tried to respond to the communication attempts made by humans stealing images from their psyche and embodying those present-future-past shadows as if they were real. During the short Solarism season, the diagonal of the shadow on the western wall slid unnoticed towards the eastern wall and began to creep slowly towards north. The dark

El océano Solaris trató de responder a las tentativas de comunicación con los humanos robando imágenes de su psique y encarnó esas sombras del pasado-futuro-presente como si fueran reales. Durante la corta temporada de Solarismo, la diagonal de la sombra sobre el muro Oeste saltó casi imperceptiblemente hacia el muro Este y comenzó a alargarse. El
