In an era accustomed to the transient, where ephemerality and immediacy have become commonplace, seven artists from Mexico choose to make clay-based works as a way of intersecting past and present. Their chosen material, the ancient medium of clay, requires patience, precision, and intimacy to be given shape, and it is through this process that the artists poetically materialize their intention of suspending and stopping time. They also build upon the collective histories of their chosen medium – clay as nature, clay as origin, clay as shelter, clay as dam, clay as vessel, clay as terra firma – and choose to play with those histories in their attempts to give the viewer pause while, simultaneously, addressing twenty-first-century aesthetics and concerns.
