3725 Km at Projex-MTL, Montreal

Los invito a la exposición 3725Km. en la galeria Projex-MTL en Montreal, Canada. | I'm pleased to invite you to the show 3725 Km at Projex-MTL in Montreal, Canada.

All the pieces presented in 3,725 Km are works that deal with “loosing control”: they are abstractions generated by the imposition of the particular characteristics inherent to the subject matter. The result is a group of images that silently reveal different aspects of the subjects portrayed, and of a culture’s pre-established social, geographic and economical relationships.
The several portraits included in the show, as well as the research, were created using images found commonly on the Internet. But they were also generated from a geographical and cultural distance: The images try to speak about Montreal from the perspective of an outsider; they are a failed attempt to grasp the cultural life of Montrealears made by an artist researching at 3,725 Km away. But it is precisely the distance between Mexico City and Montreal what makes the use of stereotypes, coincidences and misconceptions meaningful to the show.

Here are some installation views of the show | Aqui, unas vistas de la exposición.
