About the Exhibition

Renata Petersen's proposal prescribes the desacralization that religious manifestations often deserve, thus showing them as a mixture between mere pop culture, voyeuristic freak shows and a pinch of Greek tragedy. In all cases, as constructed spectacles.

Through Petersen's figurative and literal eyes, and emerging from within the guts of oppressive cults, vacuous symbols, pretentious and aesthetically crippled architectures, these pieces are brought to life in ceramics and glass, which transform what began as a mystical waste for desperate consumers into luminous beauties, full of sardonic playfulness that are certainly worth seeing.

-Roberta Garza, journalist and researcher

Pequod Co. is pleased to present Renata Petersen’s (Guadalajara, 1993) first solo show at the gallery: Teopolis.

Petersen developed a project that initially comprises the gallery’s transformation through a new piece for the floor tiling.

On the other hand, the show’s homonymous piece will be presented at the exhibition: an installation of 89 architectural elements that refer to buildings adopted by new religions born during the 20th century and that carry on until today.

It will also include pieces in ceramics and blown glass, techniques that have characterized the artist’s recent production.
