Axelle Russo 

Axelle Russo is a french-italian sculptor living in Mexico City. Her work approaches the concept of borders as a metaphorical yet structural beacon establishing limits, dialogue, identity and movement. While cultivating inspirations from different fields of knowledge from sculptural abstraction, chemistry, biology as a close interface between complex systems, she methodically challenges physical limitations in her practice, and even identity limits in the particular case of transmutation experiments transforming materials into others. Movement, seen in exchange and migration, becomes a binding agent of the dialogue behind her work. Her pieces are sensible portraits that depict moments of spontaneity, filled with the intention of establishing a tension in the space between axes, fluidity and permanence.
