Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo presents “Perspective”, a solo exhibition curated by Agustín Pérez Rubio, featuring around 40 works by the artist Jorge Macchi (Buenos Aires, 1963): an overview of the 25 years of production gathering together drawings, videos, paintings, photographs and installations coming from many public and private collections in Argentina, Spain, Portugal and the USA.
The file rouge of this show is the artist’s perception – as the title suggests – of the relationship between reality and fiction, the world we life in and the one we dream. In his practice Jorge Macchi works with everyday images and transforms them by means of plays of light and shadow, sequential dynamics and effects of repetition that end up creating redolent perceptive effects and disrupting consensual visions.
