Simon Starling “Bowls and Plates” at Casa Estudio Luis Barragán and Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico City

The Luis Barragán House and Studio exhibition consists in a new photographic project specifically developed by Starling, for the context of the Luis Barragán House and Studio, consisting of a series of site-specific daguerreotypes. Silver as a storied material serves as the point of departure for these works. Like double mirrors, each daguerreotype has been produced on a highly polished, mirror-like sheet of silver-plated metal and in turn each silvered surface now hold a ghostly image which echoes the physical nature of both its own support and the space in which it was made.

For his first solo exhibition in a Latin American museum, Simon Starling produced a new film about the Museo Experimental el Eco’s founder and architect, Mathias Goeritz, the traces of a largely forgotten mural by British sculptor Henry Moore and an unrealized 1953 performance by Mexican actress and dancer, Pilar Pellicer.
