hector esrawe presents new collections at masa galeria in mexico city

at the latest exhibition of masa galería 2020 ‘recover/uncover’ in mexico city, héctor esrawe presented a series of curved metal lighting fixtures, and a collection of sculptural structures. ‘shifting parábola’ is a series of lighting fixtures on different scales that explore and strive to go deeper into the way light travels over a continuous metal surface. esrawe’s collection ‘grids’, is based on a metal lattice that over time gets filled in by candles’ dripping wax.

‘shifting parábola’ by hector esrawe, is a collection of large-scale lighting sculptures that inhabit and are integrated into the space in which they are contained. they create a relationship where the size of the piece creates a dialogue with the space intervened. the sculptures are built from brass sheets shaped mostly by the weight and flexibility of the material, and the tension generated by the position between the lighting fixtures and the wall/floor or ceiling. the resulting geometry is formed from within by light, creating a set of contrasts between the contained light and its surrounding space.

‘shifting parábolas’ are part of the third iteration of the concept ‘parábola’, designed by esrawe in 2019 for masa galería exhibition ‘collective/collectible’. this first research evolved into two sculptural lamps called ‘paralela & catenaria, presented in the same year at chic by accident gallery.

the second collection presented, ‘grid’, is a series of architectural and sculptural structures in diverse formats and proportions, built from a continuous metal grid made of brass or iron. each element offers the possibility to hold one or more candles. as the wax melts, it fills the metal lattice forming an organic, random and dramatic expression that builds up over time and accumulates into an ephemeral presence, creating a living changing piece that evolves and transforms.
