January 30th - March 28th, 2018
Ángulo Cero is pleased to present Castillos, the first solo exhibition of the Mexican design group Cooperativa Panorámica.
After a deep analysis and experimentation with the pyrotechnical tradition of Tultitlán, Cooperativa Panorámica shows a new collection that reinterprets the character of the Mexican fiesta.
Taking the ephemeral manufacture of toritos and castillos as starting point, they use design as a means of exploration to emphasize the deepest aspects of this practice.
The exercise resulted in a series of vessels inspired by the construction of these structures, exploring the negative space and incorporating the metal, instead of bamboo and hemp, the original materials. By contrasting concepts such as the ephemeral and the imperishable, the useful and the non-functional, the void and the matter, they create new readings and approaches to the discipline of design as well as to a centenary practice in the country.
The collection is a result of a research process commissioned exclusively by Ángulo Cero gallery. It will be shown also at Zona Maco from February 7th to 11th, booth ZMD18, in Centro Banamex, Mexico City.
