El Espejo


Museo Jumex, Mexico City

Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín, Medellin

curated by Marielsa Castro and Emiliano Valdés
El espejo [The Mirror] presents a complex spatial situation in which a group of new sculptures, produced during a research and production residency at the Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín (MAMM), interact within a space covered by an immersive mural painting.

This installation seeks to conjure up the encounter between two real characters —the Danish designer Verner Panton and Colombian artist Antonio Grass— and to suggest to the visitor a scene that blurs the limits between the pictorial and the sculptural, or between fiction and reality. The exhibition becomes, therefore, a situation that juxtaposes in a real area different spaces or places that are essentially incompatible; the result is a metaphor that proposes similarity or closeness between different objects and thus, has the capacity to reveal what is common between them.
