Event Details

Tashkeel is delighted to present ‘Geometric Integrity’, a solo exhibition by artist-in-residence Inés J. Pedras marking the culmination of her four-month residency, organised by Acción Cultural Española in partnership with Tashkeel and the Embassy of Spain in the UAE. The exhibition arose from investigations into physical and creative concepts of the geometrical world; examining it from abstract and other multi-interpretive perspectives while simultaneously researching its relationship to Constructivism (represented in the show in the form of architectural models).

In ‘Geometric Integrity’, Inés seeks to accentuate the spirit of innovation encapsulated in geometry, the essence of which sits deep within our collective subconsciousness and is the root of all creation. Her creative process was deeply intuitive, materialising in the form of an integrated three-dimensional model. The exhibition prompts the viewer to consider geometric optimisation (a method to predict the three-dimensional arrangement of the atoms in a molecule by means of minimisation of a model energy). This is achieved using a system of patterns, connections and structures in a constant quest to attain maximum creative spatial capacity in relation to the material surface and parameter; within this, the triangle as an integral element possessing the greatest stability.

The residency sought to provide an opportunity for one practitioner to develop their art practice within the geographical context of the United Arab Emirates, thereby engaging in intercultural dialogue with artists, designers and craftsmen. Organised in parallel with the Spanish participation in Expo Dubai 2020, the residency took place over four months.
