¨CINCO MOVIMIENTOS PARA EL VACÍO¨ displays a body of work through which the artist Amadeo Azar proposes to rethink the place that the pampean landscape occupied in the conformation of our idiosyncrasy, its implication during the conquest and how it went from occupying the desire in the imaginary of the settlers to become a hostile and endless space being named at that time as “the desert”.
The sounds invade the room inhabited by a set of ceramics suspended from thin iron structures and a series of abstract watercolors. The latter function as a score for the music that can be heard in the space: five sound pieces that the artist composed especially for the exhibition, and which in the room can be heard coming from the hanging ceramics. The works are presented to the viewer as a circuit that feeds back on each other (music, score, instrument).
Azar’s personal history, his interest in Argentina’s socio-political history, local architecture, the emergence of the artistic avant-garde in Latin America and the exploration of materials such as watercolor and sound experimentation make up the universe of meaning in which the viewer will be immersed as he or she walks through the exhibition. This historical perspective is, in Azar, a continuous process where the true search is that of a personal poetics and its possibilities.
