An exploration of memory and dreamlike nostalgia evoked by the sea.
A series of cliffs mark a visually violent and monumental entrance to the exhibition, breaking the surface of the water and the subconscious. The images, made up of mirrored diptychs, are partially intervened by embroidery, following the evocative forms of water and stones. The diptychs carry references to an internal mirror, looking almost like ink spots. Embroidery takes depth away from photographs, making the two dimensions of the medium itself obvious, highlighting its limits and its frame. At the same time, the use of the thread plays with the restrictive character and the visual lightness contrasted by the stone.
Founded in 2014 by Montserrat Castañón, Ángulo Cero was born as a space to think about design from an artistic perspective. Its curatorial approach inclines towards the experimentation of materials and formal languages, commissioning collections for a sophisticated market inside and outside of Mexico.

Upon moving back to Mexico, where she was born, she got involved in film production and started participating in group exhibitions of various disciplines including video, installation, GIF and photography.
She is interested in exploring the meeting point between dreams, memory and oblivion; fundamental elements of everyday life that influence our personal stories. She is looking to create mock emotions, collages of contradiction, expressions of fleeting moments and lasting consequences.
Her video work has been recognized in several international film festivals including the HBO Latino Film Festival in New York and contests such as “Hello, Future” of Saatchi & Saatchi. Part of her work is represented by the gallery White Cremnitz and has participated in group exhibitions in Mexico and the United States.
