“Body and Soul”

In contemporary art the human body represents a connection between the inner voice and sociality, private and public things, politics and individuality.

This exhibition highlights loyalty in diversity, a line of thought beyond borders and any regionalist categorization. It is seamless, featuring the points of connection underpinning the artworks.

 

“Cuerpo y Alma”

El cuerpo en el arte contemporáneo resulta una interfaz relacional entre lo personal y lo social, entre lo público y privado y entre política y subjetividad.

La selección privilegia la fidelidad en la diversidad, rechazando la idea de un arte latinoamericano como tal, dejando de lado cualquier categorización regionalista.  Los puntos nodales aparecen en los fragmentos que proponen cada uno de los artistas expuestos

Gerardo Feldstein

The intention in Feldstein’s work is to reveal errors, blunders. Prima facie, these figures may seem to be grotesque and void of any narrative. In fact, the power of these works prompts us to reflect about some of our own life situations.

 

En la obra de Gerardo Feldstein se hacen visibles los errores, las torpezas, se evidencia la motricidad gruesa, no el contenido narrativo.

Alejandra Jones

Her clay sculptures depict the migratory flow. Clay is a source of life and the resource that the first immigrants had at hand to start a new and promising life. Eggs and feet convey her feelings towards migration: birth and the capability of going somewhere else.

 

Alejandra Jones establece recorridos donde lenguajes y formatos se comunican con las corrientes migratorias.
