Carpenters Workshop Gallery is excited to launch Liminal Forms, a group exhibition co-curated with Zambrano Contemporary on view from 14 May – 3 June, 2022 at Torre Invex, in the heart of the vibrant Monterrey community. The exhibition is accompanied by a curatorial text written by Gonzalo Ortega, former curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Monterrey (MARCO).
As the title aptly reflects, liminal suggests the transition between two states, alchemically indeterminate. Inherent in these contradictions, such as design and art or utility and sculpture, we discover that these works are ultimately many things simultaneously: function, form, and poetry.
Liminal Forms examines artists working with industrial materials and processes, paying homage to Monterrey as the industrial capital of Mexico. The exhibition establishes a dialogue between works by renowned modern and contemporary Latin American artists such as Gabriel de la Mora, José Dávila, Héctor Zamora, Marco Castillo, Martín Soto Climent, Artur Lescher and Jesús Rafael Soto, with works by European artists Atelier Van Lieshout, Nacho Carbonell, Drift, Ingrid Donat, Maarten Baas and Vincenzo de Cotiis.
Liminal Forms connects these artists and their practices, as material plays a starring role in these works that pioneer new vocabularies while transforming our perceptions.
