· WELCOME ·
Hojarasca (fallen leaves) is an online gallery and blog encompassing the work of Mexican designer and curator Juan Larrauri Scott. It is intended as a portfolio and web hub in which to share creative outputs such as articles, curatorial ideas, virtual exhibitions and experimental work.
Just like the leaves from a tree, ideas grow, mature and finally kindly and gracefully fall to enrich the soil beneath. In the hope that a bunch of ideas worth sharing can enrich and leave an enrich base behind, Hojarasca intends to contribute to our shared cultural and natural environment by connecting and drawing attention to a wide range of subjects including design, creativity, entrepreneurship, ecology, social change, art, craft, advocacy, curatorial practice and more.
Enjoy and thanks for your visit.
· ABOUT ME ·
Juan Larrauri Scott
Juan is a Mexico City-based emerging curator and creative entrepreneur driven by a deep interest in indigenous cultures, crafts and design. His passion for crafts and his extensive experience working with Mexican artisans led him to found Artefacto, an e-commerce website, dedicated to Mexican crafts, rooted in indigenous traditions.
Exasperated by industrialisation and its effects on the environment he aims to raise awareness about the important role crafts play in our culture, everyday life and environmental well-being.
Since 2012 he has been responsible for the legacy of Mexican artist, Alfredo Larrauri. He is currently in the process of consolidating an archive to conserve, restore and disseminate the artwork, which consist of paintings, drawing, prints and photographs.
He is currently enrolled in a MA course in creative entrepreneurship in England, which is encouraging him to develop a curatorial practice by setting up exhibitions which will contribute to the advancement of arts and crafts in Mexico and beyond.
