    VERSUS: Fransisco Castro Leñero & Fabiola Menchelli Arroniz, Octubre 2020
     
     
    In order to generate a more dynamic exhibition, Arróniz’s calendar has been reconfigured to make way for two long-term projects.

    ‘So what?’ is the title of a long-term collective exhibition that will take place from September 07 in the gallery’s Main Hall, taking up at first a constant axis of Arróniz’s approach: geometric abstraction and space, the selection of works that make up ‘So What?’ it will be modified regularly in an organic and freeway.

    On the other hand, the Project Room will receive a new cycle of short-term samples. VERSUS, will receive every month for 3 weeks, an exhibition with four hands where two artists will dialogue through their plastic practice, their context, and their intentions.

    The reopening of our facilities will be from September 7 under strict hygiene measures and healthy distance, by appointment at info@arroniz-arte.com and at 5555 117 965.

    In addition, we will offer a 3D virtual tour on our platforms.

  • CONCRETE LIGHT

     

    CONCRETE LIGHT
    Nikolai Ishchuk and Fabiola Menchelli
    June 5 – 21, 2020
    Online Viewing Room

     

    Originally conceived as a Summer exhibition in Los Angeles, CONCRETE LIGHT aims to relate the ways in which two artists develop a visual reference to, or extract influence from architecture in their photo-based work.

    Nikolai Ishchuk (Russian, b.1982) and Fabiola Menchelli (Mexican, b. 1983) similarly explore post-minimalist and abstract approaches to architectonic landscapes using innovative photo-sensitive processes. Menchelli, through her multi-exposure echoes of Tadao Ando’s Oaxacan observatory, translates the curvature and contemplative experience of physical space into lunar impressions on paper — taking sculptural forms into the darkroom. Conversely, in his multi-panel compositions, Ishchuk distills the basic structures of spatial perception through cameraless and mixed-media techniques – letting sculptural and quasi architectural forms emerge from the darkroom.

    VISIT THE EXHIBITION

    Note: There are several full-screen visuals as well as a background audio component. While you can view the show on your mobile device, the optimum experience is on a larger screen.

    I hope their work and the presentation provide a few moments of meditative respite.

  • AD MEXICO – Arquitectura de la Luz

    ARQUITECTURA DE LA LUZ
    La fotógrafa mexicana, Fabiola Menchelli, manipula la luz para crear una obra refinada y atemporal.
    POR SANTIAGO TOCA URIARTE
    Architectural Digest Mexico
    Febrero 2020

    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.

  • THE CURVATURE OF LIGHT

    Fabiola Menchelli 
    Curated by Paola Jasso

    Fundación Casa Wabi
    Dr Atl 62, Colonia Santa María la Ribera
    Ciudad de México, México

    September to January 2020
    Monday to Fridays 10:00 to 17:00 hrs.
    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.
