Disassembled Horizon by Francesca Du Brock + Daniel Monroy Cuevas

and

To unmap the terrain: A presentation of Artists’ Publishing in Mexico, developed by Fabiola Iza and initiated by Isaac Olvera

30th May - July 31st

 

Disassembled Horizon is a collaboration between two young emerging artists currently living and working in Mexico City: Francesca Du Brock and Daniel Monroy Cuevas.
 
The video and textual work with voice over is a study in the commonplace experience of flying, but from a slightly altered state.  As the pilot tries to adapt to the strange geometries and optical illusions present whilst flying under certain conditions, real and imagined elements come together in a disorienting simulation, where even the idea of flying becomes unfamiliar.

Francesca Du Brock is an artist originally from Alaska who currently lives and works in Mexico City. She holds a B.A. from Bowdoin College and a M.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute.
 
Daniel Monroy Cuevas studied Audiovisual Arts in Guadalajara and later, Cinema at the Vancouver Film School in Canada. From 2011 to 2013 he participated in the academic study program at SOMA, an organization dedicated to cultural exchange and arts education in Mexico City. He currently lives and works in Mexico City.
 
Disassembled Horizon was commissioned by: Casa Maauad
