Lolo (Buenos Aires) and Sosaku (Tokyo) investigate the possibilities of sculpture as an expanded field. The nexus that unites his works is the search for an object in contact with his surroundings and with the spectator. An object that seeks friction, friction, and tension. His work moves between different languages such as sculpture, installation, kinetic art and painting. Its modus operandi: to constitute itself as a subject, and from its machinic materiality, to point to transcendence, to mysticism and to the unknown.

"Multidisciplinary artist Miguel Rothschild works across a wide variety of mediums from modified photography to glass sculpture and textiles. In several recent works the Argentine artist has captured the slow roll of ocean waves in suspended fabric installations titled Elegy and De Profundis. Both artworks seem to play with the viewer’s perception, appearing both as waves or perhaps a slice of the sky. Even the filament that holds the artwork airborne seems to glisten like rays of sun or rain. You can see more of the Berlin-based artists work on his website."
Artist Anish Kapoor is back with a new exhibition titled Destierro – which translates from Spanish into ‘exile’ The exhibition, taking place at Parque de la Memoria in Buenos Aires, features three installations that see Kapoor veering back towards his signature style of work with pigmented powder. However, unlike his previous work, the three pieces on display in Argentina shine a spotlight on the global migration crisis marking a change in direction for Kapoor who has, up until recently, shied away from making political work.
Kapoor is the first British artist to put on a solo exhibition in Argentina. The space, Parque de la Memoria, is also known as Remembrance Park as it was built in memory of those killed by Argentina’s military regime between 1976 and 1983.“Destierro (exile) can be seen as one of the major global dramas of our time," says the exhibition’s curator Marcello Dantas. “This exhibition was reborn in light of our urgent times.”
