About

Monica Avayou

Born and raised in México City with degrees in Communication and Art History.

Monica founded the Alacrán Producciones Brand more than 10 years ago. Since then she has gone on to work in various other creative endeavors including event planning and scene design in shopping centers. Today she is mixing two of her greatest passions; a combination of art and fashion, resulting in her emblematic fabric and patchwork pieces and her necklaces made from jute, yarn and plastic waste.

For Mónica Avayou, the process of creation is the fulfillment of an instinctive need to express herself, through a sensual perception of the world that is embodied in her unique fabrics.

My

Work

Since I was very young, I had a phobia to snakes and in a creative, unconscious process, I focused on wrapping strings. When finished, its shape resembles of snakes, making a kind of totemic object. I master it in the creation, I control it in reality.

Working with death means working with life, just as time is to work transformation…

For me, the process of creation is the fulfillment of an instinctive need to express myself, through a sensual perception of the world that is embodied in my unique fabrics.

From the twisting of the material in an exhaustive struggle to find its shape, the curves become visible and, in complicity with the folds they create, they hide and blur what is still to be discovered in a female body. In this way, I accompany matter that expands beyond its limits, helping it to emerge from anonymity.

My

Philosophy:

In a creative process of bringing together the impossible. I seek to blur the boundaries of seemingly incompatible elements. Opposites that meet each other are found in the object, ceasing to be a single element, to become something new.
