OdA ARRIVES AT PINTA MIAMI 2022
OdA participates in the 16th edition of the great art fair Pinta Miami: The Modern & Contemporary Latin American Art Show in the framework of Art Basel and Miami Art Week.
Pinta's commitment as an international platform is to energize and disseminate modern and contemporary Latin American art, with a stronger link than ever with its Latin American roots.
The galleries can be visited in the Main Section, including OdA with a collective proposal by the following artists: Andrea Alkalay, Fabiana Barreda, Josefina Robirosa, Jose Marchi, Monica Fierro, Marcela Marcuzzi and Paula Senderowicz.
Andrea Alkalay works with cycles of change. Demolish and rebuild, disconnect and reconnect. There is a search to maintain what the materials transmit, those forms and influences.
Fabiana Barreda's work refers to the habitat and how through history, architecture and morphological processes, different ways of constructing and deconstructing the home and the subject are generated. Recreating important architects such as Le Corbusier, Niemeyer, Amancio Williams, Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid and Lina Bo Bardi, among many others, she builds utopian projects reflecting on the new forms of space and the body.
Josefina Robirosa is an encounter with geometry and the human body. In her work, they are not mutually exclusive nor do they need to oppose each other.
"Robirosa's human figures cross her infinite pentagrams of color in the folding of volumes: they are presented to us as complex folds or pleats of a unique and contained matter represented in the colorful succession of lines". Extract from the book Josefina Robirosa by Rafael Cippolini.
The protagonists of the series of oil paintings on canvas by Jose Marchi are children copied from anonymous photographs of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Now they are immersed in a blue atmosphere that floods the entire surface of the canvas with the exception of some details that the artist makes in full color, disarticulating a homogeneous chromatic structure to favor the coexistence of multiple planes on the same support.
Mónica Fierro uses books rescued from oblivion. She meticulously transforms this material, paper, by cutting, rolling, folding. She builds modules with volume, large, small, of different shapes. They are joined together as the work grows. The color is given by the paper itself; the typography, musical notes, engravings, and everything that can be inside encyclopedias, bibles and children's stories. Her work is in permanent movement and mutation. They are dancing forms of apparent lightness that are sustained not only by the vinyl glue, but by a thoughtful, meditated fit.
How would it feel to undertake one's own journey through Mount Purgatory, without Dante and Virgil? What would this mountain of seven ledges in the middle of the ocean be like? Would there be colors from another world? Would it be an encounter with Nature, free of civilization? These are questions that Marcela Marcuzzi explores in her intervention and reinterpretation of Gustave Doré's illustrations (19th century) of Dante's Divine Comedy.
In Paula Senderowicz's Amada la mar, an eruption of convulsive waves is shown, with a contained force that rushes outward. If you pay attention, you will discover a woman giving birth with ravaged bodies, melted and surrendered to eroticism. Also, there are infernal tongues threatening darkness, a paradise that bites its own tail.
"These images could be the prelude to a cataclysm, something that recalls that notion of Deleuze with which I identify so much: the catastrophe affects the act of painting itself," explains the artist.
