    A Room Is Made Up Of Other Spaces

    PROXYCO is pleased to present A Room is Made Up of Other Spaces, an exhibition with works by Ana Elena Garuz, Veronica Lehner, and Fabiola Menchelli, and curated by Daniel Garza Usabiaga. The work of these artists constantly addresses the notion of space or engages with specific spatial situations for their production and presentation. Although working in different media – installation, painting, sculpture or photography – they privilege non-figurative and constructivist solutions and share, among other things, an interest in color and other pictorial concerns that can be tied to the legacy of monochrome painting and geometric abstraction. For this exhibition, they actively participated in different ways in its articulation and final arrangement. Having the architecture of PROXYCO as the starting point, the presence of their artworks creates a complex spatial scene and establishes a new set of situational relations.

    Lehner’s work, produced for this exhibition, takes as its departing point the architecture of the gallery. One section of the window’s façade seems to unfold toward the inside through a solution that gathers architectonic, sculptural and pictorial concerns. Ana Elena Garuz’s wall pieces highlights the presence of a constructive material and explores it as a plastic surface. Her work presents a study in line and materiality, and its relation with architecture, by alluding to the presence of a quotidian object: blue tape. Through multiple exposures and different constructivist solutions, Menchelli creates abstract compositions that seek to trace, translate, balance and expand the space within the frame in a simple gesture. As such, these interventions refuse to conceptualize space as a passive receptacle. Instead, their works deal with its transformation. It is space as a moment of change, a passage from one configuration to another.

    Bajo el Sol Azul
    07.OCT – 16.DEC 2017

    Bajo el Sol Azul presents a series of new cyanotypes created during Menchelli’s 2015 residency at Casa Wabi in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, in 2015, and then developed at the University of Cincinnati, where Menchelli was a Visiting Artist from 2016-17.

    Menchelli’s practice is fundamentally a photographic one but constantly pushes the limits of photography, creating unexpected dialogues with other artistic disciplines. Bajo el Sol Azul reveals the poetics of observation and the subtle revolution that occurs through profound contemplation.

    These new cyanotypes take the Japanese architect Tadao Ando’s observatory at Casa Wabi and translate its organic curves into luminous exposures of blue, reconnecting the concrete structure to the sky it was designed to observe.


  • Don Julio Young Collectors Salon

    Opening Friday November 10, 2017, 7:00 PM. 
    Viena #10, Colonia Juárez, Mexico City.

    Please join us for the opening of Gallery Weekend’s Young Collectors Salon to unveil a commissioned piece from Fabiola Menchelli for Tequila Don Julio 1942.

    Fabiola Menchelli’s work investigates the limits of photography through the language of abstraction. For this commission a bottle of Don Julio 1942 was used to create a photogram, that is, a photographic image obtained without the use of a camera. This is obtained by placing the object on a photosensitive surface – for example, a film or photographic paper – and then exposing it to direct light in the darkroom.

    The work uses the photographic medium to represent the bottle of Don Julio 1942 and insinuate it in a subtle way by making the inside of the bottle visible like an X-ray, thus causing the inversion of the image involved in the photographic process. Using light as raw material, the work explores the essence of photography and uses creative processes to demonstrate the materiality of an image and explore photography as a poetic space.
