“The vastness imposes itself as the dominant dimension before the landscape, with the assurance that there is always something else there, in the outside of the picture, on the other side, that which we know exists even though we are not seeing it: the unlimited,” he explains. Diana B. Wechsler, academic artistic director of BIENALSUR, and curator of the show with Nekane Aramburu (ESP).
The problem of space – continuous, infinite, inescapable – is imposed on artists from different latitudes by taking it to underline it, reinvent it conceptually or intervene, seeking effects and aesthetic and political readings of the most diverse. What can not be neutralized: it condenses from the utopian dimensions to the political claims, from the records of the visual experience to the conceptual elaborations.
