In Ornamental, Débora Pierpaoli uses as a trigger the tension between civilization and barbarism, the axis of conflict and the cornerstone of Sarmiento's ideas, inextricably embedded in Argentine culture. Both realms converge through artefacts that speak of a primordial, ritual and rarefied beauty. The decorative arts and nineteenth-century modernism merge in her work in ways that are both heterodox and anti-classical. Inspired by the Sarmiento Museum collection, Ornamental creates, through totems, paintings, carpets and ceramics, a space that ambivalently situates us between the 19th century hall and the popular sanctuary.
