Following Gorilla Glass onFacebook,
you may have seen pictures and events focussed around The Gorilla Gallery.
The Gorilla Gallery, a concept of Gorilla Glass founder and jewelry designer Jason Pfohl, is an art gallery based in Oaxaca, Mexico with a focus on glass and ceramic artists working in Mexico.
Jason wanted to create an independent art space that would allow for interdisciplinary collaborations and exhibitions. It is an inclusive space inviting sculptors, graphic artists, street artists, photographers, and body modification artists to experiment with glass and ceramics.
“The glass and ceramics are not a destination but a departure point for the artwork.” says Pfohl.
The Gorilla Gallery has had the opportunity to work with many younger, emerging artists in Oaxaca. Using the Gorilla Glass production facility and print shop, young artists have been introduced to a new medium.
“It has allowed street and body modification artists to show artwork within a gallery setting, giving them access to a different public. The result has been an experimental and avantgarde art space that is willing to take risks and recognize new artistic disciplines.
For established glass and ceramic artists living in Mexico, it has given them a space to show their art work with installation and more conceptual pieces.” he explains.
Pfohl hopes the Gorilla Gallery will also become a destination for visiting international artists to help develop a cultural exchange of ideas and techniques.
One of the goals of the Gorilla Gallery is to invite body modification and suspension artists to show and perform their artwork in a serious gallery setting. At the grand opening in 2012 there was a suspension performance by Jussi Paradise and Lucky Hell (with rigging by Jimmy Buddha of Diablo Organics).
Currently there is a print making collaboration between twenty international scarification artists and the the Gorilla Glass vitriography print shop. The prints will be on display at the APP in Las Vegas and again at the Gorilla Gallery for Day of the Dead. There will be an upcoming suspension and bondage performance by Samar and Midori.
The exhibits change every two months with smaller events featuring street artists painting on glass being showcased monthly.
The gallery is open on Thursdays from 2:00 until 8:00.
It is located at
213 Crestop, entre Morelos y Matamoros
