Buenos Aires, Argentina
March 10, 2021 – March 26, 2021
In the midst of the sense of rudderlessness and misgiving that has gripped us since March 2020, a context where our former points of reference have been transformed or even vanished altogether, we were able to find shelter in a convergence of wills.
At a physical distance but mindful of one another, an implicit community based on the pleasure of creating emerge between us. As artists and curators, we formed a cellular and cybernetic organism in which each part played a specific role. That organism started to sketch out a world of its own.
Against all predictions, Mundos propios has constructed a body. The works are organs of affect that attest to the sense of pleasure: an act of heeling as lived collective experience.
We envision a simultaneous, fragmented, and discontinuous panorama made up of nuclei that act as flexible guides within a single space. In that panorama, we form clusters of disparate works, materialities, and temporalities, and discover hubs, contradictions, and counterpoints. Each artist’s singularity forges an individual path and constructs a reality that only makes sense if seen from the whole.
Mundos propios is living matter. It is the representation of something greater, an aesthetic discourse. As a space of trial and error, of general idea and adjustment, it is a sort of laboratory of ideas in which all the elements intensify through working together to effect a transmutation that yields a consummate image.
