PAOLO MONTIEL COPPA aka TANSEN

Paolo Montiel Coppa was born in the City of Cuernavaca, Mexico in 1977. His interest in researching light, earth sciences and astronomy led him to study Physics at the UAEM (Autonomous University of the State of Morelos). Later he studied Art Theory at the Morelense Center for Arts and Art History at La Salle.

Self-taught musician who fuses different musical genres, such as jazz, rock and African music. His concern for the study of music took him to audio engineering at Opus 440, where he made direct sound and musical score for short films.

His research is focused on the study and properties of color and how these are perceived by the human body, as well as its reflection in memory through light.

Montiel Coppa is co-founder of the Alberca Artes interdisciplinary arts center and Vistlán Multimedia studio where he begins to incorporate his first digital lighting systems for art and architecture projects. Subsequently he moved to Mexico City to work full-time on digital lighting projects in Mexico and Latin America (Chile, Colombia, Peru, Dominican Republic and Venezuela).

Currently he is a collaborator at Cocolab where he is involved on the development of lighting installations in permanent culturetaintment projects and shows, among which he was involved with the lighting design for the Mexican Pavillion at the Expo Milan 2015. He also worked in projects like Kukulkan Nights at the Chichén Itzá pyramids in the Yucatan Peninsula and in the lighting installations White Canvas, Cycles and Outside, the latter presented at the Day for Night festival in Houston, Texas.

He is a senior lighting designer at Nerd Light & Media where he has worked as an art-handler specialized in digital lighting systems for permanent applications in art and architecture, working in the technical direction with artists such as Kurt Hentschlager with ZEE shown at the Laboratorio de Arte Alameda during Ars Electrónica Mexico 2010, AntiVJ during the Oaxaca Project festival with the installation The Ark and James Turrell in the lighting and control direction of different permanent projects in Mexico such as Pasajes de Luz (2019) in the Museum Jumex of the CDMX, Encounter (2015) of the Skyspaces series for the Botanical Garden of Culiacán, Sinaloa, Agua de Luz (2012) in the Yucatan jungle, Tree of Light (2011) at Hacienda San Pedro Ochil, Yucatán.

He is also a member of the collective of artists and technologists Mayan Warrior, with whom he has carried out various art and music projects at Burning Man in Black Rock, Nevada.

He has been commissioned in different music festivals designing lighting installations such as MUTEK, Ondalinda x Careyes and BLACK by Matte Projects in New York.

His experience as a programmer and lighting designer has led him today to his artistic creation which focuses on installations of in situ kinetic light art.

He currently lives in Mexico City where he has his studio and showroom of light art.

MNEMOSYNE

Mnemosyne is a large-scale light art and sound installation. It is a giant walkable kaleidoscope that offers the public an immersive experience generated by one of the simplest principles of optics: the reflection of light.

This installation is made by mirror finished stainless steel structures with LED lighting, together with sound and a video-projection system, form a triangular kaleidoscope 15m long by 4m high.

As you walk inside these infinite reflections of light, you discover thousands of geometric shapes combined with changing colors that blend, giving the impression of floating in space. The visual contents accompanied by music, light and sound design are constantly changing.

Through this installation, Paolo Montiel Coppa, wants to create a physical space fed with light movements that allows the public to activate their memory connecting them with their creativity and being able to evoke different emotions that guide their attention towards a contemplative-emotional-meditative moment.

presents for the first time the light installation Mnemosyne by Mexican artist Paolo Montiel Coppa, which will be on display and open to the public on the ground floor of the architectural complex of Artz Pedregal from November 29th, 2019 to March 29th, 2020.

Mnemosyne is manufactured by Metalglez.

SCHEDULES: TUESDAY TO THURSDAY FROM 1:00 PM TO 8:00 PM. FRIDAY TO SUNDAY FROM 11:00 TO 20:30 HRS. MONDAY WILL REMAIN CLOSED.
