Diego Bianchi


Diego Bianchi (Buenos Aires, 1969) generates all-embracing spatial 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. His 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.

Among his most recent projects are WasteAfterWaste at Pérez Art Museum Miami (2015); Suspensión de la incredulidad (MALBA, 2015; ARCO, 2014), Under de Si, codirected with Luis Garay (Bienal de Performance, Buenos Aires, 2015; Malta Festival Poznan, Poland, 2014; Sala TACEC of the Teatro Argentino de La Plata, Buenos Aires, 2014), Into the Wild Meaning (2013) Visual Arts Center, University of Texas at Austin, Feel Free Feel Fear (2013), Slow Burn, An Index of Possibilities. Tilburg, Holland. Market or Die, 13th Istanbul Biennial (2013); The Ultimate Realities (2011), 11th Biennale de Lyon, A Terrible Beauty is Born, France.

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.
