Things Happen In A Silent Way

ASMA

Online Viewing Room

Things Happen In A Silent Way is an exhibition that brings together the work of Jorge Satorre (1979, México) and the duo ASMA, formed by Matías Armendaris (1990, Ecuador) and Hanya Beliá (1994, México), with the purpose of exploring not only their points of contact, but also of contrast.

ASMA’s work resorts to mythology, psychological literature, popular culture and alternative futures from which, employing their contrasting formal language, they conceive a series of hybrid characters in scenarios and situations endowed with strong symbolism. On this occasion, the duo presents a new body of work that extends their material exploration.

 

 

Composed by a series of silicon paintings in bas relief that revolve around the image of an anthropomorphic rose, the works portray this character inhabiting renditions of the romantic cliché of which this particular flower is typically a partaker.

Through the construction of this fantasy-induced realm, a psychological space is materialized, where bodies of vegetal-insectoid forms represent human intimacies from the sexual-affective imagination of adolescence, all while the animist language of the relief proposes an internal world framed by objects that evoke a real, domestic, industrial and utilitarian space.
