Nani Lamarque (Buenos Aires, 1985) takes as his reference the propaganda leaflets and symbols of the government policies of the last 10 years: the phenomenon that is known in Argentina as the Kirchnerist “decade gained” in which, among other things, there has been a growing militancy in young and middle class citizens. Lamarque distorts statements, takes into his own hands campaign posters and translates party anthems. He produces a collection which could only be likened to party paraphernalia by making use of forms that recall minimalist structures and pop silkscreen prints of the ’60s. In her installations, he resorts to the suffocating atmosphere of institutionality, he injects tension in the messages and seeks ambiguity when it comes to taking a stand. He also wonders about the space occupied by the artist and contemporary art in politics.
One of the most significant of her recent projects is Frente en Alto (La Ene, Nuevo Museo Energía de Arte Contemporáneo, 2013).

28.03.2018 [...] The construction of Gothic environments can be envisioned as an obsessive insistence that has gradually perfected Nicanor Aráoz’s art. That energy is a form of imagination that operates by exacerbating the tensions that organize the real: its expressive language is the symptomatic torment produced by the historical and hysterical antagonisms between good and evil, the healthy and the sick, the sanctioned and the perverse, crime and law, the repressive control of forms and the monstrous abundance of the deformed.
