Ignatti’s work takes its references from the urban environment of Buenos Aires, be it the city’s middle class domestic environments, or street presences such as political graffitis and nailed woods which block off windows to keep away squatters from empty homes.
He builds a personal poetic using elements such as found window blinds, old wallpaper, discarded mirrors or pieces of painted wood which cordon off areas for street workers, Not surprisingly installation is an important aspect of his work, aside from individual pieces where the approaches of abstract formalism are recreated using these elements with their strong association to the local urban landscape.
In a recent series of objects Ignatti broke pots which housed plants and trained the plants to keep growing by assisting them with wire cables and metal devices, an apt metaphor for survival through social or economic crisis.
