PRODUCTORA produced a black ballpoint on vellum drawing that depicts the gallery with certain twists in orientation, scale or perspective. By using these classical architectural tools a new phantasmagoric imagery of the building is created. Although using very simple and commercial materials (bic ballpoints), the drawing technique recreates a Piranesi-like engraving, as if the Storefront Gallery is re-discovered through the eyes of an ancient expedition team.
PRODUCTORA is an architecture practice founded in 2006 in Mexico City that brings together architects from different countries: Abel Perles (1972, Argentina), Carlos Bedoya (1973, Mexico), Víctor Jaime (1978, Mexico) and Wonne Ickx(1974, Belgium). PRODUCTORA develops its ideas by means of intuitive explorations, rather than on the basis of an established methodology. The name itself emerges from the conviction that the design process advances through a continuous production of formal and spatial material to be evaluated. PRODUCTORA is developing a variety of projects in Mexico and abroad ranging from single-family dwellings to office and public buildings. The office has been teaching and lecturing on national and international events and has been widely published. In 2011, PRODUCTORA founded LIGA, a platform for Latin-American architecture in Mexico City in collaboration with curator and art-critic Ruth Estevez.
The summer benefit architecture drawing auction includes work newly commissioned by Storefront for Art & Architecture for the Aesthetic/Anasthetic exhibition on display until July 28, 2012. Each drawing depicts the Storefront Gallery space at 97 Kenmare, from the perspectives of a diverse group of emerging and established architects worldwide. The drawings reveal a different aspect of the space and are representative of the generative properties of the architect's drawing. All proceeds will support Storefront's exhibitions and programs.
