Mexico City, September 4 – October 3, 1997
Curated by Luis Felipe Ortega
Artists: Daniel Guzmán, Anette Kuhn, Gabriel Kuri
For Tres espacios, writer and artist Luis Felipe Ortega selected the work of three artists whose themes, methods and materials are diverse but who are united by their reflections on the present, on art and on specific concerns: the public, the personal and the intimate. “It is clear that the intimate leads on to the personal and the personal on to the public”, Ortega explains. “The intention of this exhibit is to enclose each in their own boundary, to focus on the space between these representations and leave it to the audience to realize the connection between them.” The exhibition takes the visitor on a journey where he can move from the specifically visual and sensitive in the work of Anette Kuhn; to the personal, as reflected by Gabriel Kuri, with references to the outside and interactions with others; and finally the public where Daniel Guzmán shows the references and concerns that nurture his work. It begins with a photograph show in a dark room, then moves on to floral objects reminiscent of the crowns of the deceased, and ends with a gathering of images, plants and sculptures that speak of historic personalities, in order to ask one question: what is our destiny?
