PHOTOGRAPHY AS A CONSTRUCTION OF ARCHITECTURAL SENSE

Gonzalo Maggi, in his photography, provides entity to a space that, although occupied, emanates a certain feeling of emptiness. By introducing a subject, an individual but metonymic form of existence, he gives architecture a meaning that exceeds its own ontology.

AN ANGEL, COLUMBUS, WRESTLERS AND A PAIR OF WINGS: THE COUNTER ALLEGORY AS A RESIGNIFICATION OF HISTORY

The echoes of the bells from the Church of San Ignacio of Loyola, in Buenos Aires, resound on the stones of the old Manzana de las Luces historical complex, one of the last buildings from the colonial era that survive in the city’s historic center. The place, which through the centuries has been a convent, a Museum of Natural Sciences and even a Faculty, transpires hispanic barroqueness. It is now a museum without a permanent exhibition; it is, in its way, a monument of its own. In the courtyard, the spectator looks upwards and there stand the balconies of the old cloisters, higher up the glass and steel walls of the skyscrapers of the financial district and, poised on the museum’s ceiling, observing this ancient patio, an unwinged angel that looks out of place. And it is. Or maybe not.

José Luis Landet has been searching for the image of the Latin American landscape for years. And in El Atajo (The Shortcut), the exhibition that he presents in Marco, he finds some ways of approaching that idea. He builds ramps, connects vestiges, shreds colors, traces identikits, joins random images, creates an alphabet ... and ends up building a total idea of ​​our landscape, but above all of another subject that also haunts him: the painting. There is a large installation, a physical shortcut, and a set of 467 works that point to something that is clear in the subtitle: a displacement in the author.
