Artists Bio

Marilá Dardot
(b. in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, 1973) Lives and works in São Paulo (Brasil).

The works of Marilá Dardot have political implications in the sense that they deal with the relationship between individuals and society. Neither propaganda nor illustration of the political world, they are subtle and delicate criticism of a world ruled by pragmatism and productivity and gives opening to affection, kindness and hope. The artist’s work makes use of diverse materials and media ranging from videos, photographs, prints, sculptures, paintings and actions to large-scale and site-specific installations.

Fritzia Irízar
(b. in Culiacán, Mexico, 1977) Lives and works in Culiacán (Mexico).

Fritzia Irízar's work questions the value of money and its purchasing power, she plays with the economic and symbolic revaluation of objects as they move from their common field to art. Her work recognizes that history and science are almost fictions, built on small surfaces of knowledge and are subject to the decision of a few individuals. However, they are fictions that we want to hold: as acts of faith, of belonging, of will or certainty.

Rodolfo Díaz Cervantes
(b. in Mexico City,1980) Lives and works in Mexico City.

The work of Díaz Cervantes valorizes improvisation, accidents, neurological impulses and small repeated acts. Such methods offer new paths and unexpected results. Decomposition, randomness, control, freedom, color series, perspectival illusions, repetition, variation, and memory are all means the artist uses to communicate narrative, meaning, and intent. His oeuvre is the result of self-imposed methodological constraints, linguistic permutations, creative intuitions, and material trials.

Luis Úrculo
(b. in Madrid, Spain,1978) Lives and works between Mexico City and Madrid (Spain).

His background in architecture has always been a very deep influence and a starting point in the investigation of his work. He is interested in all that is peripheral to architecture, the processes, developments and approaches that can be manipulated, sampled and translated into other scales, adapting to the composition of the project, creating new scenes / experiences / expectations not contemplated previously. His work is part of different collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Málaga.

Francisco Ugarte
(b. in Guadalajara, Mexico, 1973) Lives and works in Guadalajara (Mexico).

Ugarte's work relies on the fields of architecture, especially in the creative process. Using different media such as specific interventions, video, installation, sculpture, and drawing, his work can be understood as a phenomenological exercise in which reality is understood through the perception of phenomena and the essence of things. The perception, abstraction, intuition, light, time, changes, place, material and the universal are recurring themes in his work.

Daniel Monroy Cuevas
(b. in Guadalajara, Mexico,1980) Lives and works in Mexico City.

His artistic practice functions as a mechanism of reflection on the implication of time activated by motion picture (film or video) in the perception and contemporary conscience. In some works this mechanism produces archaic results that are understood only through their reference to the technology of the moving image. In other projects is the time itself that is questioned: an always contaminated time in conflict with the same fiction that produces it.

Gustavo Abascal
(b. in Mexico City, 1979) Lives and works in Mexico City.

He received an Honorable Mention in the 1st Córdoba Biennale, Argentina. Illustrations by him have appeared in publications such as Al filo de la luna by Guillermo Samperio, Cacaxtla by Howard Quaquenbush, Gustavo Abascal Gráfica 2004-2007 (Samsara Editorial), Indie Rocks! Magazine and Generación Magazine. In 2016 he was selected to do the Viborg Kunsthal residency in Denmark. His most recent solo exhibitions include El ideal larvado at the Museo de la Ciudad de Querétaro and Cultural Syndrome at Arredondo \ Arozarena gallery.

Israel Martínez
(b. in Guadalajara, México, 1979) Lives and works in Mexico City.

Israel Martínez' work aims to generate afterthoughts about society through sound and music. Since the mid 90's he began writing in underground fanzines and cultural press in Mexico. Thereafter he's been active in different fields regarding music production in electroacoustics, sonic experimentation, field recordings and spatiality. He has produced video-installations, site specific projects, in situ actions, interventions and graphic work with photography, typing and photocopies.
