Carla Zaccagnini combines private histories with Argentina’s social past

(Buenos Aires, Argentina)

The Argentine-Brazilian artist living in Sweden, Carla Zaccagnini, presents a solo exhibition “Tomorrow was going to be yesterday”. At the individual, made specifically for the Muntref rooms, at the MUNTREF Art Center Contemporary, Carla uses archival materials, documents, videos and installations of private Argentinian families to construct the social imaginary about millions of immigrants who arrived in Argentina at the beginning of the last century.

Until April 30th, she combines private histories with Argentina’s social past. Among the pieces made especially for this exhibition stands out the one that begins the exhibition under the title The sea you see will never be the sea that I saw, composed of two hundred glass bottles containing a raft inside. “Placed under the windows that face the banks of the river, these bottles are a sign of distance and displacement”.

The exhibition is curated by Lucrecia Palacios and Agustín Pérez Rubio.
