MITOCONDRIA + BRAULIO LAM COLABORACIÓN
This piece is a collaboration between designer Isa Guadalupe Medina, artist Mischka Ippolita and musician Braulio Lam.
The background fabric is made of linen, and the image is a representation of the microscopic structure of Linum usitatissimum (the linen plant) in which the Artist tries to evidentiate the complexity of the material by showing another level of perception of this material. Linen is considered a very noble material, environmentally friendly and sustainable. By making linen clothes, the Industry doesn’t poison de land. This piece of textile is early stage of making clothes an art, making wearable art, and most importantly, making new clothing with a sustainable method and material
The textile reveals a hand beaded image of two blue jaguars in front of an orange beaded sun, a “Jaguar Eclipse". The jaguars represent the reuinon of two souls and pain, a pain of impermanence, of an ephemeral life; the souls of the ones we have lost, relationships that have fallen apart, injustices that keep continue to happen, animals in the brink of extinction, and all the other losses of life.
The respect for this powerful creature was lost when they began to be hunted for their skin. Society has lost the connection with nature, it has been devalued. The jaguar corridor throughout the American continent is being obstructed with hunting and walls that are being constructed.
The beaded work also reference the microscopic structure used by artist Mischka Ippolita, Musician Braulio Lam was introduced to create music that would resonate with the process and significance of the piece.
