Bianchi (Buenos Aires, 1969) generates
situations with the use of sculptures, installations
and performances in which erosion, disorder and destruction are the
actors in the state of matter. As a key reference figure in local

works focus on entropic landscapes: they reintegrate the abject, that
which is “worthless” in the consumer society, into the visual
world by means of compositions that shroud a strange sensation of
harmony. He frequently resorts to the interaction between performers,
with whose presence he speaks of symbiosis between the body and the
objects, assimilation of the body as an object and the
possible and absurd interconnections between the things of the world.
