LENGUA ÓSEA (BONE TONGUE), AN ESSAY ON SPACE, BY EDUARDO BASUALDO
Bacelos Gallery (Madrid) presents Eduardo Basualdo's first individual project, Lengua Ósea (Bone Tongue). In this exhibition, the actor and puppeteer, brings together two dimensions that go through our daily life, bars and words. While some condition the behavior of the body the others structure our rational reality.
Basualdo's (1977, Buenos Aires) work has transformed the space into a base of words, it develops in a territory that opens when we look closely at an edge. The expansion of the limits, their complexities and temporality has been a reason for exploration for the artist in his latest work.
This exhibition covers from literature, the psychoanalytic theory and cinema, the multidisciplinary artist, specializes in strange objects and building environments that destabilize the relations between the spectators with the space.
Eduardo Basualdo participated in 2010 in the Kuitca Scholarship, which took place at the Torcuato Di Tella University. It should be noted that Basualdo has participated in different biennials such as the Biennial of Lyon (2011); the Montevideo Biennial (2012); the Biennial of Gwangju (2014); "All the World's Futures" at the 56th Venice Biennial (2015); and in the 12th Biennial of Havana (2015).
