ASMA is an artist duo based in Mexico City, formed by Hanya Beliá (México b. 1994) and Matías Armendaris (Ecuador b. 1990). Their work uses allegorical figures and architectural spaces exploring formal interrelations between painterly and sculptural expressions. They employ fictional narratives which include forms of nature interwoven with psychoaffective contemporary landscapes. As a result of a collaborative process, the work focuses on hybrid and polluted forms both in a material and conceptual nature.
ASMA’s recent projects include “Por debajo del árbol” a group exhibition at PRAXIS studio of architect Agustín Hernández Navarro, PEANA Off-site, Mexico City, MX; “Vain Kisses to the Source” a solo exhibition at Deli Gallery in New York, US; Vermin Gloom a solo exhibition at Project Pangeé, Montreal, US; participation in “OTRXS MUNDXS” a group exhibition at Museo Tamayo, Mexico City, MX; “Anima Mundi” a group exhibition presented as part of Manifiesta 13, Marseille, FR; “Janus” a solo exhibition at Embajada, San Juan, PR; “Half Blood Princess” a solo exhibition at PEANA, Monterrey, MX; “Blossoming Carcass” at Make Room, Los Angeles, US.
