Ulteriores

“Ulteriores, un más alla para Buenos Aires”
Curator: Leandro Martínez Depietri
Galería Pasaje 17. Buenos Aires, Argentina.
14th September – 26th October 2023

Uteriors, a Beyond for Buenos Aires is an exhibition that brings together Mara Kraay Caso, Hernán Pitto Bellocchio and Ignacio Unrrein, three artists interested in architecture and urban development. It moves away from the urban logic of capitalism, with its binary opposition between exteriority and interiority, public and private, to broaden the horizons towards what we could call ulterior sites: areas beyond the established limits but that exist in addition to the city, giving it a shape and a character. Kraay Caso creates phantasmatic images that recover the abandoned social housing project that Russian-Argentine modernist architect Wladimiro Acosta designed for Isla Maciel in the 1960s, Pitto Bellocchio produces an exploration of the urban subsoil with its ecosystem of roots, cables and pipes, portraying the city as an unruly and breathing organism, and Unrrein carries out an investigation about the increasing number of demolitions and the repurposing of their debris in new developments, envisioning a machine that metaphorizes the cyclical temporalities of urban transformation. Their works deal with liminal zones, porous spaces where material, temporal and social frontiers are negotiated, blurring distances between natural and built environments and imagining new forms of life in community that expand beyond market-driven and human- centered approaches.
