Figuras en Corto
By Jean Pascal Monzies
On Friday November 27, at 5pm, students from the Bachelor of Visual Arts program at the Instituto Allende invite you to an art show, Figures en Corto: Mente, Cuerpo y Alma. This art show is born out of the concept of representing the human figure in different realities. There will be original paintings, sculptures, and short films that encourage reflection on social, environmental, and existential interactions.

The paintings exhibited aim to capture the moment and essence of the human figure through live model studies in both acrylic and oil. The sculptures arise out of the idea of bringing art to alternative spaces and will be installed in different parts of the city after the exhibit. The students created three short films that will be shown as a final project of the French course at the Instituto. These short films are centered on philosophical questions such as the relationship between life and death, dream and reality, as well as everyday life interactions. These works unite the students’ acquired knowledge of language and their artistic creativity. The students used multiple audiovisual techniques to create these films such as stop-motion animation, claymation, and animated paintings. The filming, acting, and editing of the project evolved throughout the process to adapt to creative ideas that emerged.
Students who will exhibit Figuras en Corto: Mente Cuerpo y Alma are Samuel Perez, Brenda G. Espinos, Fernanda Quiroz, Ram Chanty, Claudia Chagoya, Rodrigo Ayala, and Gerardo Soria.
