Tomás Saraceno presenta su primer exhibición individual en un museo de Argentina
The Museum of Modern Art in Buenos Aires presents Tomás Saraceno: Cómo atrapar el universo en una telaraña, the first individual exhibition in an Argentinian museum by Tomás Saraceno (born in 1973 in San Miguel de Tucumán and resident in Berlin), which can be Visit until next August 27. In Av. San Juan 350.
With the curatorship of Victoria Noorthoorn and the team of the Modern, the exhibition occupies the rooms of the second and second floors of the Museum building and presents two large installations, product of a decade of artistic research. In both works, the visitor can live the experience of the universe understood as a network of interconnections where each element unfolds and transforms, reconfiguring their material and social limits.
The project, which combines Saraceno's interest in aracnology and astrophysics with sound and visual arts, invites us to a collective "cosmic concert" that includes the two spaces destined to the exhibition. When visitors enter each of the works, at first they will only see subtle details. Suspended strands of spider webs or eddies of cosmic dust float through the "cosmic net," where innumerable otherwise imperceptible connections become tangible.
This exhibition by Tomás Saraceno is born from his long-standing research on cobwebs expressing the artist's idea of the universe as an expanded domain of interconnections. At the same time, it reconsiders the affinity beyond the human, like flows drawn in the atmospheric wind and trajectories in the "cosmic net", an analogy commonly used by the astrophysicists to describe the universe as a set of discrete galaxies united by gravity. Multiple forms emerge, like sequences of trails, paths and constellations that reveal the microscopic, the global and the cosmic.
