TUNGA IN BUENOS AIRES

TUNGA

One of the most important contemporary artists had an exhibition in Recoleta Cultural Center, in Buenos Aires, from November 12 to December 12, 1999. The exhibition includes three large-scale works and two films (one of them is “A trança de Teresa” [“Teresa’s braid”], a Brazilian expression for a braid meant to scape a prison) and had the participation of nearly one hundred actors. In another room, “Lucido Nigredo”, a large installation connecting different collections by means of a common floor. And “Os Heraldos”, a combination of elements contained in previous works. Over the last twenty years, Tunga has marked the contemporary art scene with an intelligent and important aesthetic research that combines the traditional Iberian culture, philosophy, psychoanalysis, physics and mathematics. His work is characterized by a visual solution for complex aesthetic questions. Exhibition: TUNGA Period: November 12 to December 12, 1999 Location: Centro Cultural Recoleta. Buenos Aires, Argentina.
