Curated by Miguel von Hafe Pérez

Graham Gussin (London, 1960) uses a wide range of media, including texts, drawings, film, video, sound, photography, and installation, to explore our perception of time, space, and scale. His works frequently appropriate and manipulate images and literary narratives taken from art history, popular culture, and, above all, cinema.

His capacity to create pieces with a unique interpretative density is consolidated from a continuous play on references and conceptual relations, which refer to a perceptive transit, which, in turn, takes us to mental landscapes, where the feeling of unease, strangeness and melancholy can emerge in an intriguing proximity or in the most unusual remoteness.

Ricardo Basbaum (São Paulo, 1961) is a cultural agent who is very active, not only in the artistic sense, but also as a professor, researcher and curator.

Since the mid nineties his work has gained increasing international visibility through exhibitions that combine objects, texts, installations and the participation of third parties in the construction of situations that question the effects, conditions and possibilities of contemporary art.

Víctor Grippo: Transformation
Curated by Alicia Chillida

For Víctor Grippo (Junín, 1936–Buenos Aires, 2002) the artist’s work consists of deciphering the hidden meanings found under primary objects. Since he started his career as an artist in the oppressive Argentinian political climate of the nineteen-sixties, this qualified chemist had a constant interest in the relationships between art, science, and everyday life. His fascination with the transformation and regeneration inherent in nature, with its alchemical power, is already apparent in his first sculptures and installations from the nineteen-seventies and it permeates all of his work, becoming one of the central principles of his artistic practice: transformation of science into art, matter into energy, energy into awareness, death into life…
