First solo exhibition of artist duo ASMA at Everyday Gallery.
Opening on Saturday 16 September 1 – 6 PM
ASMA is an artist duo based in Mexico City, formed by Matias Armendaris (Ecuador b. 1990) and Hanya Beliá (México b. 1994). Their work uses allegorical figures and evocative architectural spaces exploring formal interrelations between painterly and sculptural expressions. They employ fictional narratives which include forms of nature interwoven with psychoaffective contemporary landscapes. As a result of a collaborative process the work focuses on hybrid and polluted forms both in a material and conceptual nature. They explore a nostalgic revisitation of the past through a metamodern lens which oscillates between critical discourses of identity and belonging with ornate formal explorations of beauty.
