Mathias Goeritz (b. 1915, Poland; d. 1990, Mexico) 

Mensaje num. 5 Timoteo 6:6, 1959 
Perforated tin on velvet on panel 

 
Mensaje num. 5 Timoteo 6:6 is an early example of Mensajes (Messages) series, which the artist initiated in 1958 after the death of his first wife. He referred to these metal pieces, covered in gold-leaf as “material prayers,” describing how the light reflected on their surfaces dematerializes them, like matter being transformed into spirit. Six gold plaques are placed on a red velvet background within this collection work, each displaying sequences of nail-hammered perforations. Five create rectangular shapes and linear compositions, with the remaining piece displaying an angulated serpent form. The latter is a recurrent symbol within the artist’s practice, most famously used in his large metal sculpture El Serpiente, made for his Museo Experimental El Eco in 1953, and influenced by Mexican Pre-Hispanic stone sculptures. Serpents are associated with several Mexican gods, such as Quetzalcoatl (‘Feathered Serpent’), Xiuhcoatl (‘Fire Serpent’), Mixcoatl (‘Cloud Serpent’) or Coatlicue (‘She of the Serpent Skirt’).

Aleaciones con memoria de forma II, 2014 
Bronze and reed 

A large gold-colored textile by Ximena Garrido Lecca is presented on the gallery floor. Titled Aleaciones con memoria de forma II (Shape Memory Alloys II), the piece is woven from bronze tubes. Bronze is an alloy made from copper and tin. Copper is one of the primary materials mined in the artist’s native Peru, an extractive industry that has had devastating ecological effects and has displaced many rural and indigenous communities. Peru is known for its rich indigenous textile traditions and the complexity involved in their production. Garrido Lecca’s piece becomes a complex portrait of the contemporary political and cultural landscape of Peru, as it tries to negotiate the long-term effects of its dependence on the mining industry.

Niñxs Sicarios, from the series Dibujo textual, 2022 
Charcoal and thread on cardboard 

Child Sicarios (cartel hitmen) 
I committed my first murder at the age of 16 
From the shock of see how the torture the snitch, I vomited 
They each grabbed a hand and cut it off 
Finally we decapitated him.
