The Argentinian artist creates a spatial choreography of bodies and objects. He is interested in the relationship with objects and their impact on our lives. The video's absurd plot takes place in the setting of an underground car park and urban wasteland. The characters are grotesque mixtures of life-like elements and objects such as tyres, tubes and household appliance packaging. The human figure here is broken and must interact with the hostile scenery of the concrete underground and the areas adjacent to the railway tracks. Awareness of the finiteness of the system that is the Earth at a time of climate crisis and man's dependence on objects is vividly portrayed here.
Diego Bianchi is an Argentinian visual artist. He is interested in the passage of time leading to the transformation of everyday objects, the relationship between nature and social behaviour, in creation and collapse, catastrophes, accidents and coincidence.
