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
contemporary art, for
Bianchi the practice of art is a sphere for trial and indeterminacy.
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.

Diego Bianchi. In an environment of division and powerlessness, where the objects of techno-capitalism emerge in all their toxicity, mathematical symmetry is the paradoxical form of democratic verification.
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.
