“Objetos de resistencia”

A collection put together by Fabien Cappello

The exhibition has a dual purpose: to introduce the public to

Mexican everyday objects and to present a collection that reflects

a particular economy that is at odds with the global neoliberal

market. Indeed, these objects do not seek to create necessities but

rather to provide specific solutions to existing, specific, common

and cultural needs. They resist the imposition of a homogenous,

globalised world where we no longer know how, where, and by whom

what we buy is made. Through this collection, Fabien invites us

to question our relationship with the systems of consumption.

The exhibition “Objetos de Resistencia” is conceived as a journey

of discovery by inviting the visitor to question the meaning,

the utility, the design and the provenance of this heterogeneous

collection of objects without the greed of the buyer but rather

with the naive and sincere point of view of a spectator.
