JULIA CARRILLO. LUZ INSTANTE

Luz instante is a journey through a series of optical artifacts that create a sensory continuum. Each piece links light, space and time, while encouraging us to experiment with our bodies. It is an invitation for each participant to own and inhabit the works from their own place. The visitor will create space and immediately activate the works, because when we enter a space the space enters us and the experience becomes an exchange, a fusion between subject and object, the here and now of light constituted by spatial encounters.

This journey through light begins with an outdoor artwork whose projections are activated by sunlight, so that its effects are temporary, intermittent, random. The path changes direction towards the interior of the room, a controlled light appears that becomes a substantial element of optical artifacts. Artifacts arise from phenomena that occur in nature, from everyday situations that we do see but not always observe. In the room, these artifacts become prosthetic extensions of the human body and lead us to dimension spaces that seem unusual, but are there, in our day to day life. They are devices that fuse the object with the subject, the materiality of the specular surfaces with introspection, with emotional impressions and, also, with curiosity. The artifacts transform during the journey, limit the interaction or open it to contain us, dose the sensory involvement, first the eye and then the body, as if we were progressively activating our perceptual capacities.

From her experiments with space, virtual sculptures emerge, geometric and illusory three-dimensional figurations that are discovered inside his kaleidoscopes. ‘Sculptures of light’ Julia calls them, because light is precisely the matter of these pieces. The artworks in this exhibit play with the viewer’s perception within different spaces, causing immersive situations that lead to a unique moment of discovery.

With the exhibition Luz instante, Julia Carrillo moves a part of her experimentation laboratory in which she has worked for several years to Espacio Arte Abierto. Luz instante is the result of her studies on light, on how it creates space, how it allows us to perceive what we inhabit and, in return, how it allows us to recognize moments or distinguish certain atmospheres.

JULIA CARRILLO

Julia Carrillo (Mexico, 1987) studied Mathematics at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and completed a Master of Visual Arts at the San Carlos Academy, later on she studied at the New York School of Visual Arts (SVA). She relates her artistic practice with notions derived from mathematics and physics to build an approach to natural phenomena, such as the transformation of space, the movements of light, the travel of sound and the dynamics of fluid forces.

Her individual exhibitions include La luce e la sua assenza at A Pick Gallery (Italy, 2021); Estrofas de agua at Centro Cultural Bucareli 69 (Mexico, 2019) and Geometrías de la Luz at the Complexity Sciences Center (C3), UNAM (Mexico, 2017). She has also participated in group shows in Mexico and abroad. She is a beneficiary of the Young Creators program of the National Fund for Culture and the Arts (FONCA) and of the ACT Program (Art, Science and Technology) of the Ministry of Culture in Mexico / UNAM, to name a few. She has participated as a guest artist in the residency of the Artistic Residency Program Laboratorio Arte A. C. of the Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico (2020); MMCA International residency program for artists of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, Korea (2019) and Flux Factory of New York, USA, (2014) among others. She was recently selected artist for the Art OMI residency (2020, now scheduled for 2022).

She is currently a researcher at C3 (Center for Complexity Sciences, UNAM).
