PATRICK PETTERSSON: TIEMPO SOLAR
Yet, the life on this planet is adjusted best to perceive time relative to its most important clock: the sun. In his new show, Patrick Pettersson (b.1970) explores the concept of our perception of time, and the role that the natural light plays in it. Creating his fictional landscapes that are at the same time wild and ordered, the artist explores the temporality of a landscape outside of its cultural and scientific contexts, focusing our attention on the light. The sun thus becomes not just a marker of time in Pettersson’s landscape but also one of the inhabitants of the artist’s floating gardens.
With the group show Golden Spike, Heart Ego joins the search for the Anthropocene’s onset. Works of Ana Barbara Caballero, Beatriz Morales, Pedro Magaña, Mariana Con, Hector Falcon, and Oswaldo Ruiz, reflect on the concepts and phenomena that can define humanity as a greater natural force leaving traces of itself around the globe. These works blur the boundaries between social and natural, the destruction of the old and the emergence of the new, conscious and inert. Humanity’s power to understand and shape the world is seen in this exhibition as a blessing, a curse, and a mystery that we are yet to understand.
Francisco Larios: Parque Lezama. Más allá del Sendero
Francisco Larios presents two series, Coral Island and Khloris. Apparently distant from each other in terms of technique, composition, format, and discourse, when in the background, they intercede, since both explore the ravages of determined human behavior by instinct.
Oswaldo Ruiz: Los Objetos y Las Sustancias
Los objetos y las sustancias is an exhibition featuring two recent projects by Oswaldo Ruiz in which the artist explores different forms of damage and symbolization: the projects Materia Mnémica (2018), curated by Josefa Ortega, and Todo lo sólido (2019 – Present), realized in collaboration with Ariadna Ramonetti.
IN CLOSE PROXIMITY: Rafael
In the current edition of In Close Proximity, Monterrey-based artist Rafael Bustamante (Guanajuato, 1993) invites visitors to participate in the experimentum crucis of the psychological color theory and test the capacity of colors and their hues to reflect, overflow, or confront the emotional seascape within us.
