Commissioner: Paula Vázquez

Exhibitor: Mónica Heller


Mónica Heller builds an all-encompassing setting, inspired both by the multisensory architectural design of Argentine suburban bingo halls and by the surrealist universes of interwar painting and poetry. Screens and projections are home to different characters that dwell in an oscillating world: beings that construct, deconstruct, and reconstruct themselves in time loops as short as infinite. Each screen encases an animated portrait and in each one – through absurd humour, harsh lyricism, and the metaphysical mood of 3D rendering – a series of events unfolds, in which transposable and restless metabolisms constantly reorganise themselves into a wide array of inexplicable possibilities.
