Lisa Giordano
(b. in 1992) Lives and works in Mexico City.

At the moment her work moves between reverie, object fetishism, feminine force and pale colors. Giordano's paintings, constructed from memory, try to guide the observer beyond the usual notions of the object. Through work, everyday things are transformed from entities of conventional use to energy symbols, devices for memory and sacred relics. Through light colors and flowing compositions, the artist seeks to accentuate the beauty and relevance of the delicacy, ease and sensibility associated with the divine feminine.

Wendy Cabrera Rubio
(b, in Mexico City, 1993) Lives and works in Mexico City.

BFA from the National School of Painting and Engraving, "La Esmeralda". Her work explores the relationship between aesthetics and ideology, using existing iconographies in phenomena such as ‘greenwashing’ and movements of ‘Alt Rigth’, among others. She works mainly with knowledge dissemination processes, as well as its consequences in applied science, economics and industry. She has a particular interest in research, insertion in specific communities and collaboration with third parties. Her projects are developed in different media such as installation, video and didactic theater. She has participated in spaces such as Chalton Gallery, Karen Huber Gallery, Galería Karen Huber, Salón ACME, Museo Numismático Nacional, Museo de Historia de Tlalpan, Bikini Wax, EPS and el Colegio Nacional.

Karla Kaplun
(b. in Queretaro, Mexico, 1993)

Using the process of observing our surroundings and questioning it as a starting point, the work of Karla Kaplun generates different perspectives on the cultural, social and political landscape of our contemporaneity. From the theatrical paraphernalia, the popular aesthetic and the collective imaginary, Kaplun analyzes different topics using research, semantics, multidisciplinary and collaborative as a key axis for the conceptualization of her works. Oriented towards post-colonial studies, history as a means of predicting the future, fiction and the layers of irony as a didactic strategy, the projects propose different ways of re-configuring our environment through art.

José Eduardo Barajas
(b. in 1990)

The practice of Barajas consists in an investigation of visuality from experimentation with different techniques. His work combines his personal experiences, iconography of popular culture and elements of different pictorial traditions. The popular motifs are intermingled with technical processes ranging from conventional drawing and painting to abstraction and experimentation with new materials. In this way, the work of Barajas is presented as a visual language that challenges the viewer's perception and memory.

Daniel Pérez Coronel
(1984)

Perez Coronel's most recent work is developed within a network that refers to both the colonial painting of castes and issues of race and economy in Latin America. His portraits reflect the social events of the art world and evidence an atmosphere of tension caused by the phenomenon of class transit. His most recent exhibitions include ‘Trece’ (2016) in LADRÓNgalería; and ‘Pigmentocracia’ (2018) in Bikini Wax.


Gallery Statement

LADRÓNgalería is a non profit space dedicated to cultural projects founded in 2015. It is currently located in a 490ft2 space in the Buenos Aires neighborhood in Mexico City. LADRÓN focuses on the dissemination and development of contemporary art, as well as counterculture practices that belong to social movements like graffiti, hip hop culture, tattoo culture, fashion design, reggaeton, neighbrohood crafts, lettering, sonidero music, artistic craft, rap, and the importance of breakfast in society. Two creatives are invited monthly to share the gallery in order to create a new project specifically made for the space. These exhibitions are curated and coordinated by three members of the space, with a particular interest in collaborating with agents that we think can develop their production inside the specific context of the place (architecture, geography, social relation with the space, symbolic value, etc).
