Mónica Giron


Mónica Giron (San Carlos de Bariloche, 1959). The experience of witnessing the stunning Patagonian horizon –whose human and geopolitical contexts are being rapidly transformed– is at the very heart of the artist’s work. Through her presentation of the landscape and the world as a field of metaphors from which to pose unexpected questions of a sensitive, open, ethical and moral nature, Giron creates a body of work and actions that she unfurls in her exhibitions and seminars. She anxiously observes the landscape, architecture or art, mindful of the ability of forms –and consequently of humans– to concentrate or misuse information, energy, knowledge and the power of expression. Repeatedly her work is expressed in installations, objects and analyses of forms, drawings, watercolours and site-specific projects. She currently lives in the city of Buenos Aires. 
Her most recent individual exhibitions are Ejercicios con el modelo terrestre (Centro Cultural Recoleta, 2015), Fronterizo y Traslación, (Galería Zabaleta Lab, 2013) and Neocriollo (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, 2007).

Nuevos pensamientos imbéciles

22.07.2017 The body without organs (BwO) is something that can be constructed, fabricated according to an excercise of experimentation that consists in taking our body and opening it to a countless number of potential connections. It is possible to approach Martín Legón’s “Nuevos pensamientos imbéciles” with this deleuzian notion in mind. Because what is exhibited in Barro is the skeleton of a body (of art) without organs. An unique body, dismembered, presented in rigid strucutres and shapeless forms as if it were an art fair.

Intolerance

25.05.2017 Like in most of her artworks, there's a narrative element in Amalia Ulman's latest installation. Here, the spectator -or user- becomes part of the piece by wandering through the dream-like environments that are the rooms which compose the labyrinthine structure of Intolerance.
