Candelaria Palacios (Argentina)
FABLES OF SOME PLACE
June 18 - July 12, 2019
Opening: Tuesday, June 18, 6-8 pm
The Argentine soil has given birth to numerous species that have evolved in time, changed sizes and furs, developed limbs, and ruled out others. The fauna mutates and the earth mutates with it. In my work, I take evolution as a starting point to discover fantastic variants and reflect upon the actions of a nature that is dynamic, that is always recalculating and calibrating itself. As a stroller between the countryside and the city, I seek to generate an interweaving between the two worlds. From this need to generate that bond appears in my work a fantastic, mobile, and extravagant nature that comes and goes with me, that never leaves me because I am the one creating it.
