more pictures of the exhibiting works

The solo show is dedicated to the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo and their indomitable work to give an identity to the children of the sons desaparecidos, their grandchildren, torn by the Argentine dictatorship off their natural parents and illegally given up for adoption.

The exhibition is exposing sculptures, installations and photographs of great evocative value and emotional impact that playing on the characteristics of glass - kiln cast or kilformed glass or as industrial material - suggest the gap, but also the objective analysis of the dealt subject, the torn identity.

Completing the exhibition is a site-specific installation: 119 baby clothes in kiln cast glass  - so many are the children of the desaparecidos who have been able to know their biological identity thanks to the  DNA testing - hanging around the perimeter of the exhibition space into an uninterrupted chain, to enclose poetically and ideally the exhibition and at the same time tangible reminder of the painful and salvific work of the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo.

catalogue available with texts by Manuela De Leonardis and Silvia Levenson
