Commissioner: Sergio Alberto Baur Ambasciatore.
Curator: Florencia Battiti.
Exhibitor: Mariana Telleria.
El nombre de un país / The Name of a Country is a punk, Frankensteinish bestiary that flaunts a high-fashion collection attitude condensing the sediment from Mariana Telleria’s world.
The artist traces a highway with an infinite number of linguistic lanes, activating confusion – mixing things together, building monsters – and sustaining viewers’ awareness in a continual state of transit, lost in the pitch dark back and forth between what they see and the need to attach meaning to it.
The procession of sculptures is presented as a support for the intuitive transformation of things; an archive of desacralized meanings where religious iconography, rubbish, fashion, spectacle, and nature share the same horizontal hierarchy.
