Claudia Comte, Gabriel Rico, SUPERFLEX: Desert Flood

On the occasion of Mexico City Art Week, LagoAlgo presents a group exhibition by Swiss artist Claudia Comte, Mexican artist Gabriel Rico, and Danish collective SUPERFLEX. The space’s third show creatively explores earth’s ecological changes and the threat of destruction to vital sources of water. Through painting and sculpture, Comte speaks of the urgent preservation of future ecosystems by way of cartoons, handcrafts, and optical art. Rico, known for his poetic collection of contemporary objects juxtaposing nature and culture, here displays a neon light installation with human characteristics and cultural symbols. SUPERFLEX art collective, founded in 1993 by Jakob Fenger, Rasmus Nielsen and Bjørnstjerne Christiansen fuses art, science, and collective intelligence in an immersive work illustrating a McDonald’s restaurant flooded in water and chaos, as well as neon signage reading, “We are all in the same boat.”
