ARQUITECTURA DE LA LUZ
La fotógrafa mexicana, Fabiola Menchelli, manipula la luz para crear una obra refinada y atemporal.

Me gusta la sensación de no saber que estoy viendo, y me gusta más cuando va acompañada de la belleza – tal como la describiera el crítico Dave Hickey – de “estar frente a algo que siempre quise ver pero que nunca se me había presentado”. Lo bello, dice Hickey, hace reaccionar a nuestro cuerpo de manera tal, que nuestro intelecto quiere saber que está pasando. Por eso la belleza rompe con el orden establecido, altera el statu quo y cambia los cánones de lo que deseamos. Eso es lo que sucede estando frente a la obra de Fabiola Menchelli.

Una primera mirada hace evidente que se trata de fotos, al menos por un momento. Su superficie plana refleja la luz y se mantiene sobre el papel con un brillo y un aplomo que solo se logra mediante la fotografía natural. Su cualidad es única. Pero apenas descubierto el medio, de inmediato se desencadenan una serie de preguntas – la mente se cuestiona qué está pasando –, si se trata de fotografías, ¿cómo las logra? ¿Qué hace para obtener esa paleta de color tan particular? ¿De dónde saca esas composiciones tan únicas? ¿Cómo mezcla o superpone los colores? Algo sucede con sus piezas que, en el mejor sentido, no permanecen estáticas ante el espectador, sino que invitan a regresar una y otra vez a mirar.

El proceso de Menchelli es laborioso y su metódica construcción corresponde al de una verdadera artesana de la luz, quien superpone procesos y exposiciones para llegar al resultado final.

A su corta edad, la obra de Fabiola Menchelli ya ha reci¬bido un sólido reconocimiento dentro y fuera de México. Este verano presentará su primera muestra individual en la galería ProxyCo, mientras que la fotógrafa mexicana pasará el verano en Casa Nano, una residencia para artistas en Tokio, Japón. Ese es, hasta ahora, el recorrido ascendente de la artista y su poderosa arquitectura de luz.

Saturdays & Sundays 10:00 to 15:00 hrs.

Fundación Casa Wabi is pleased to present the last exhibition of the 2019 exhibition cycle at Casa Santa Maríala Rivera. Fabiola Menchelli closes this season with an exhibition that talks about the cycles, the rotation of the stars, and the way we measure the passage of time, observing the light.

One of the most interesting approaches of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity is that in the vicinity of a sufficiently massive astral body, the path of light can be bent by gravitational force. Apparent variations in the position of distant stars can be observed when they pass near a star or mass, effectively doubling the light. In La Curvatura de la Luz, Fabiola Menchelli’s work shapes form through multiple exposures, thus intervening space and reality.

Monday to Thursday 10:30 to 18:00 hrs.
Fridays 10:30 to 15:00 hrs.

The exhibition Luego la Forma, this fall at Galería de Arte Mexicano, elucidates on a process native to the plastic arts, the conjuring of the empirical from the intangible. The show weaves together the practices of Ramiro Chaves, Yeni Mao, Fabiola Menchelli, and Alejandra Venegas. The practices tease out drawings, paintings, sculptures or photos from the gooey transitional space between source and realization.

This show is about process as expression, a physicality birthed from an impression, the form shaped from an ethereal whiff. The works decipher the way in which form is made. These practices are each an elucidation, a paraphrase, a decoding.
