Argentine Sculpture 2014...


The Palais de Glace is welcoming the sculptures, paintings and drawings presented at the Salón Nacional de Artes Visuales, the National Art Competition, held in Argentina since 1911. The sculpture that was awarded the Gran Premio Adquisición belongs to Paulina Webb (Buenos Aires, 1960). It's a 2-mts-high color and geometric work which confronts the public directly. Entitled Desintegrándo-nos, is made of two shapes, perfectly constructed and knitted with transparent hoses. It belongs to the series Cristalino which the artist has been doing since 2011.

Artist Nushi Muntaabski presents a sculpture done with the materials she so perfectly dominates: mosaics. In this case she decided to cover beetroots made of foam with glass and Venetian mosaics, resulting in an object full of color and vitality.

Karin García, born in Buenos Aires, places her work on the floor because it represents a bench. She likes to define her art as functional, as an active structure which can be used but also aesthetically appreciated.
