Pia Camil takes inspiration from urban and industrial forms, reinterpreting them as handmade objects that recode the artist’s relationship to the city and notions of public space. The Mexico City-based artist began by photographing her native city, particularly the billboards that compose the visual fabric of the environment. From these hand-colored photographs, she moved toward textile-based and sculptural works, reducing the urban images to colors and geometric forms. The textile-based pieces approximate the architecture of the city, transforming the mass-produced, industrial landscape into a meticulous, handmade corollary. These works build on the legacy of Hélio Oiticica and Lygia Clark, as they are wearable and meant to engender new relationships between the artist, audience, and artwork.
