CITY OF MXICO (proces.com.mx) .- The Alameda Art Museum of the Historical Center of this capital (next to the Parque Alameda Central), houses a small sample of the Catalan designer Antoni Arola, a project that has been working for several years and that he continues in full search and experimentation with a subject as broad, diverse and immeasurable as light.
With the title Reflections 3, Arreola approaches light from various perspectives. A constant proposal seeking to work with light from the different ways of adapting and transforming.
Under careful preventive measures against covid-19, or through the museum page, Visitors will be able to see, if not with amazement like the Spanish artist, this project that has been the product of a careful and vast process, weaving a discourse of creating forms through mechanical movements that generate live projections.
This exhibition falls within the framework of MEXTROPOLI 2020 Architecture and City Festival.
The installation has been located in the main cloister and in the choir of the San Diego Convent, home of the Alameda Art Laboratory Museum, giving the piece a particular space that gives it a disturbing atmosphere.
It is really confirmed how light is capable of transforming the spaces that surround us in an incredible way.
The proposal made by the designer’s studios is complemented by the also particular sound design of Lolo, Sosaku and Max Mil.
The proposal is undoubtedly an invitation to rethink and enjoy light as a source in a different way, and to be able to open our senses and perceive more broadly how the designer notes, how it is made, shaped and transformed.
Reflexes are an important part of this perceptual process, to the extent of assimilating them as something animated.
Antoni Arola’s work is quite well known in Europe, and it is located in symbolism. His particular way of seeing life and its spaces also stands out; A designer with his own language, he feeds on disciplines such as drawing, sculpture and contemporary languages.
Light has occupied his interest for the last 25 years, leading him to this research process.
Alameda Art Laboratory is at Dr. Mora 7, Col., Alcalda Cuauhtmoc, open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., until January 3, 2021.
