Press Release

siembra

How might we reimagine kurimanzutto after its 20 years of existence?

How can we propose a different way of experiencing time?

What place does the gallery occupy in the world, the country, and within each of the communities to which it belongs?

What permeates its surroundings and what will shape its future?

Art asks questions, it doesn’t give answers.

Siembra is an exhibition that started on February 2020 and will be extended as long as the current climate will permit. The gallery space is divided into seven rooms to be inhabited or articulated by different artists, projects and collectives, both from gallery roster and externally. The span of each project corresponds to their own creative process, not to an imposed calendar; all of them are independent and have no predetermined duration. The coincidences are woven just like sowing times in agriculture.

Siembra opens the gallery as a space of possibilities, a field in which time and space relate progressively, simultaneously, at different speeds. In it, cross pollination, thought cultivation and experiments in diversity converge to reach a possible harvest.

dr. lakra

For his second exhibition in Siembra, Dr. Lakra presents a series of collages on lithographs made from 19th century print, which originate from encyclopaedic publications in his collection that portray famous historical figures. Personalities such as Descartes, Plato, Copernicus and Isaac Newton appear sliced, combined and layered with a repertoire of graphic elements from various branches of science: anatomical, zoological and botanical illustrations from natural history publications.

The practice of Heather Guertin is grounded in painting but has included performance, writing and humor, all of which engage in the relationship between observation and imaginative expression. On the other hand, the work of Leonel Salguero is concerned with the tension and erosion between the ordinary and the unexpected, as well as the life of everyday objects.

prêt-à-patria

Bárbara Sánchez-Kane presents Prêt-à-Patria at Siembra 21, a project that combines art and fashion in video, the artist’s solution to performance during a time of social distancing. The piece, formulated like a play, addresses the construction of masculinity within the Army as an institution, though her work at large revolves around the examination of identities based on gender. Prêt-à-Patria's plot centers around a military escort parade complete with a marching band all in costumes designed by the artist.

 jornada laboral

Damián Ortega presents Labor day in Siembra 20, a set of works that were born from the continuous exercise of self observation that confinement meant for him. This pause led the artist to reconsider the modes of production of work and to seek solutions that would allow him to dispense with mechanical technology and work more from the domestic environment than in the workshop. In this search, which resulted in an introspective and cathartic game through manual work and self-representation, he began to use residual materials and objects of daily use.

utopista / quiauitl

In Utopista / quiauitl, Minerva Cuevas presents a collection of posters created over the past two decades for her presentation at Siembra 18, assembled together for the first time. Posters and murals, as mediums, have been fundamental means in her artistic and political practice throughout her career. Siembra 18 materializes a series of 22 serigraphs, graphics globally produced for various social contexts, that visually guide the observer through the investigations and constant concerns in her work.
