Nature: a Space of Flows
Andrzej Tarasiuk presented a multimedia installation to close his residence at ´ace, a new moment in his research on the rivers of Latin America and on the importance of the Amazon as a source for the entire continent, after having traveled through several geographic points relevant to this topic.
Among paintings made with water from the Rio de la Plata and Rio Negro (Brasil), video, watercolors and collage, Tarasiuk also reflects on the attempts of the technique to replicate the functions that a tree fulfills. He designs humidifying, purifying machines and installs them in the landscapes that he encountered through Brazil, Peru and Argentina. For these landscapes, which for now we consider fictitious or dystopian, Tarasiuk took as inspiration also the brutalist and industrial architecture he found in his trips through Buenos Aires.
Tarasiuk works through mechanisms of contemplation, exploration and projection, from the absurd, from a ludic dynamic that the artistic perspective allows and from the acceptance that nature and human are in constant mutual transformation and change.
