Ángulo Cero is thrilled to present for the first time in the gallery space two concurrent exhibitions: Ishi by Sumie García and Mayan Blue by Carsten Lemme. Two bodies of work that investigate and portray the use of natural matter in spiritual and ritual contexts in eastern and western antique cultures.
Ishi, a series of intervened photographs by Mexican artist Sumie García, explores the process of sacralization of things through rites. Actions that have historically served to build bridges between the tangible and the intangible, or between presence and absence. The artist takes as inspiration a Shinto ritual practice that consists of circling sacred elements with a string - where it is thought that spirits inhabit - to delimit the earthly of the divine. Within these elements, which are usually found in nature, the rocks that receive the rays of sunrise and sunset hold a special place.
Mayan Blue by Mexico City-based German designer Carsten Lemme is influenced by the mythical and ritual history of the Mayan blue pre-Hispanic pigment, its spread through Latin American cultures and its contemporary resignification. A collection of sculptural coffee tables and stools carved by hand in volcanic stone and lacquered with an intense blue pigment inspired by the original recipe used by the Mayans.
Ángulo Cero is delighted to present "De Conquistas" an exhibition by Mexican textile designer José María Balmaceda.
It is only when we situate ourselves far from the known, unprotected from that which gives us certainty when possibilities unfold in front of us. And it is there, in the darkness, when the self finds itself with its fears, demons, and hopes.
The process was not simple. Balmaceda faced monsters that had remained silent for a long time inside him. Irregular and asphyxiating bugs that as they grow, they leave more significant voids. Standing in front of them, with nothing to lose, he confronts these monsters with the sensibility that characterizes him. He deconstructs, "hunts," dismembers, fossilizes them only to understand the logic of those voids.
The resulting pieces are the trace of that conquered. The ruins of the emptiness, the trophies of the hunter, the inert hints of the defeated monsters.
Until 29th March 2019
Celebrate the launch of For Generations to Come
Official Event Design Route, Design Week Mexico
Opening October 11th 19:00
Ángulo Cero is thrilled to present the launch of the first collection of For Generations to Come (FGTC) a project by Puerto Rican designer Michelle Gratacós-Arill. Early in 2017, Michelle moved to Mexico City to establish relationships with the local design scene and study the resources of industrial and artisanal production available in the country. That is how the first collection of FGTC was born. An array of metal planters and rugs made in collaboration with Mexican graphic designer Tania Zaldívar.
On the occasion of the launch and this year´s edition of Design Week Mexico, the gallery presents an installation of her metal designs that explore new ways of use of such material. The installation will be accompanied by a collection of limited edition rugs that represent the philosophy of the brand. FGTC is based on honesty and a commitment to a design philosophy grounded on the creation of durable and non-disposable objects that invite the user to play, to be creative and to create living spaces surrounded by imagination and life.

The pieces that comprise the group exhibition, Open Ends, work together to create a stage of multiple possibilities through their forms. Though it may not seem so at first, these objects are never finished, never defined—and their radical beauty lies in this very material and formal open-endedness that leaves loose ends, confuses beginnings with endings, and proposes multiple versions of the same representation.
Provoking each other to enter into dialogue in fortuitous ways, each work reveals in its turn glimpses into its creative process, its limits, and its scope.
Thus, Open Ends invites you to take an open tour, to be complicit with the object, and to receive the readings and approximations—however many they may be—that it lets loose.
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.
Tangencias is an annual program of temporary interventions to the gallery by different studies of local interior design, aiming to create new approaches to the contemporary practice, fostering reflections and questions about Mexican design.
The first edition was designed by Hana Workshop & Studio, Haws, a Mexican interior design studio that has developed exclusive furniture and residential design since 2011, creating unique environments and promoting collectible design.
For this exhibition they created a living space, where some of their furniture are combined with unique pieces from Ad Hoc, Luminosa ™, Comité de Proyectos, Luisa Restrepo and Diego Vides Borrell, Michelle Gratacós-Arill, Nomade Atelier and Nativo, among others.
Angulo Cero presents the exhibition “Landscape Anachronisms” by Sumie García. Through thread intervention to natural and urban landscape photographs, the artist explores and generates tension between past/present, real/imagined, memory/oblivion and movement/stillness.
Until 31 May of 2017
