The UPCOMING EXHIBITION – OUT OF THE CAGE, presented by Marion Friedmann Gallery is an experimental glass-blowing project, lead by Gala Fernandez and realized with the skilled glass-blowers of the acclaimed glass manufacturer NOUVEL Studio in México City.
The liquid glass is blown into various shaped and sized birdcages serving as the moulds for this process. Once the housings for colorful birds, the cages have transcended into objects and containers, where new life has been blown into them. Now they hold the colorful glass, reminiscent of the birds themselves. The objects are a result of the interaction of the hot fluid glass with the moulds: the final pieces carrying the marks and history of both their former existences.

The project questions the status of confinement versus refuge. A cage can be conceived as imprisonment or a shelter for comfort. The glass works subtly capture this essence of limitation, protection and custody in a very imaginative fashion.

Also exhibited at the show will be FOCO ROJO, a rug by Méxican Designer Ariel Rojo depicting an aerial view of México City by night, which will provide an impressive backdrop within the exhibition space and will set the scene for the glass objects as well as pointing out their rich national provenance.
