Within the framework of BIENALSUR 2021 and in the garden of the Museo Fernández Blanco, Marcela Sinclair presents an interactive intervention that deconstructs and reinvents a number of iconic elements of the surroundings of this neo-colonial house-museum as well as of the city of Buenos Aires. On the ground - between ceramic paths and grass - dozens of small pieces, which seem to have been lost in a box of parts for making scale models, are offered as indications of something else.
For example, the exuberance of the Solomonic columns meets the rigour of the sharp corners that create the planes that give shape to the obelisk; these vertical volumes are joined by others, rich in their diversity, to configure a process - somewhat chaotic - that brings together pieces from different parts in one place. Each of these volumes alludes to a building or monument that we recognise but is at the same time alien to us as presented here. For this reason, it will only be possible to perform an attempt at identification through memory or through the spectator's imagination. Hence, the artist invites the public to play and appropriate her work: a game that proposes the recovery of a recreated perspective of the city we inhabit with each fragment.
