Axel Straschnoy’s exhibition The Great Morning / Winds of long ago / Blow through the pine-trees on view in Buenos Aires until June 12

The exhibition at Del Infinito, which presents three projects by Straschnoy from the period 2003-2006, will close in a few days.

In a time when curators and art historians are beginning to write the history of the early 2000s in Buenos Aires, The Great Morning / Winds of long ago / Blow through the pine-trees places Straschnoy’s work in context. The exhibition highlights the way in which Straschnoy ́s projects proposed new forms of dialogue between the forces in struggle in the arts and in the political arena on those years. Taking a cue from the projects on display, the exhibition merges two ways of dealing with objects from the past, most of which were never meant to be exhibited but which are now the only leftovers from the projects they belong to: it is a retrospective from a curatorial viewpoint, as well as an artistic project on how to present pieces that were never realised. It is old and new work at the same time. It deals with the ideas of revisionism, rewriting, reconstruction and conservation: it is an exhibition about time and its dialogues.

Presented at Del Infinito, curated by Javier Villa

Av. Quintana 325 P.B, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

From 12 May to 12 June 2016
