Nicola Costantino


Nicola Costantino (Rosario, 1964). In twenty years of production her work has evolved from sculpture, clothing, mechanical objects and installations to photography and videoinstallation. The body is the constant focus of her field of investigation, and the artist refers to the violent treatment it receives at the hands of consumption and fashion. Over the last decade, Costantino includes herself autoreferentially in her photographic and video art production. She portrays scenes of art history and paradigmatic female characters, constructing the subject of the image on the basis of performance and acting in careful scenographies. The manufacture of her objects and the images capture an acute sense of beauty, provoking at the same time a certain atmosphere of discomfort that is hard to resolve.

Some of her most recent projects include Rapsodia Inconclusa (Colección de Arte Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat, 2015), Eva–Argentina. Una metáfora Contemporánea (55th Venice Biennale, 2013), Alteridad (Centro Cultural Santa Cruz, Rio Gallegos; Museo Provincial Rosa Galisteo, Santa Fe; Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes Dr. Pedro E. Martínez, Paraná; ECU, Rosario; Nave Cultural, Mendoza; Centro Cultural J.A. Conte Grand, San Juan, 2012-13) and Exposición Monográfica (Daros Latinoamérica, 2011).

El verdadero jardín nunca es verde
06.12.2016

"... The Fountain of Life must have presented itself to Hieronymus Bosch as a vision. It is so complicated a structure and also so monstrous -at a time animal and vegetal. And I wanted to rebuild it verily, but bearing the signs of the time elapsed and encircled by a strange landscape. As if the garden had died and in its place a sort of desert had appeared..." Nicola Costantino.
