Corzo Installation

Art Basel

When commissioned by Pratt Institute and Surface Magazine for its Art Basel exhibit, Alvaro Uribe wanted to create more than just an object, but rather a composition that translated Corzo’s distinctive heritage in Mexico and its culture, such as the work of renowned architect Luis Barragan. The result is a series of Corzo’s bottles filled with vibrant colors and assembled in multiple angles recreating the feel of Barragan’s peaceful yet striking architecture. Half of the bottles are filled with unique tint of tropical colors celebrating Barragan’s color palette, while the other half is glazed with a mirrored coat, behaving as water and reflector of the dyes. The overall piece celebrates Corzo’s elegant design expression and ability to blend the exotic with the modern.
