The Viewer Bird – Cultural Center Recoleta – Buenos Aires, Argentina 2014/2015

Digital images, prints, beautiful cotton printed papers in strips that invade the walls of the room. Sea and river. The bird is perched and thence Pompeii’s ruins look at the spectator in Buenos Aires. In the Hall, the haunting sound of beating of wings. A ‘real’ gull, sunk in the sand, cannot fly.

In the sample of Ileana Hochmann, photography* bird, that furious fight with others the guts of a fish, transcends the existence to become icon screen printing in black and white, negative and positive, in bi and three-dimensional object. And works, images and objects, where Ileana proposes a reflection and action conceptual poetry. Tours, travel and a nomadism throughout history, the same vocabulary that is becoming the measure of time / artist’s career. Always on a quest, where each sample is a station along the route.

“We have recovered the archaic to live in contemporary situation. To speak with Agamben: ‘the path of input for the present necessarily has the shape of an archaeology’.”
Mercedes Casanegra, writer, historian and art critic. (Argentina)
