Francis Alÿs . Relato de Una Negociacion
« Relato de Una Negociacion » is an international exhibition organized by the Museo Tamayo in Mexico and showing now at the Museo de Arte Latino americano de Buenos Aires.
The exhibition presents three of the artist’s projects: Tornado (2000–2010), Don’t cross the bridge before you get to the river (2008), and Reel – Unreel (2011).
In these three series produced over nearly a decade, you will see a beautiful installation of machine gun feeded by film tapes, a reflection about the power of media :
Another installation shows funny-tragic flip-flops transformed into small embarcations .
Some symbolic work represents a « fooding bridge » between Africa and Europe.
A video also presents a performance held with young Africans seeming to cross the sea with the same would be flip-flop embarcations
The Malba is easily accessible from our house La Onda.
Until February 16, 2016.
