The Random Room gallery presents the exhibition “Her Manto de Ella”, by artist Shawn McDonough, in which baroque domes and columns They are transformed into intimate garments to show the sensual, erotic, almost forbidden side of the church.

“Her Manto de Ella” is an unpublished work that combines the classic and sacred essence of baroque Catholic Mexico with the modernity of our contemporary world. The collection includes pieces such as the “Necklace of the Martyrs”, the “Corset of the Assumption”, the “Glasses of the Choir”, the “Glove of the Sad Night” and the “Necklace of the Evangelists”, all of them created from of handmade garments and 3D printed accessories inspired by emblematic ecclesiastical elements of Mexico City.

The work is the eternal search of the artist wanting to reveal something that goes beyond words. Shawn McDonough covers the woman’s body with the mantle of that memory.

“Although fewer and fewer of us practice any religion every day, the vestiges of faith, its images, its mysteries, and disorders remain in our being and culture.” señala McDonough.

This exhibition is the answer that the artist seeks without being able to answer, so he lets the viewer dare to confess to himself.

“Su Manto de Ella” will be exhibited throughout the month of February at Emilio Donde 7, Centro Cuauhtémoc, CDMX; Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
