Museion presents the first solo exhibition in Italy by Mercedes Azpilicueta (DAI, 2013). In a world that demands order, efficiency and transparency, Mercedes' project walks on a razor edge of chaos and excess. Last January 2020 our amazing alumna came back to the DAI as tutor to CHUSMA, one of the six COOP study groups at the heart of our program.
Opening 14/02/2020, 19h
From 15/02 to 13/05/2020
Museion presents, as part of an international shared project, the first solo exhibition in Italy by Mercedes Azpilicueta (b. La Plata, Argentina, 1981). In a world that demands order, efficiency and transparency, Azpilicueta’s project walks on a razor edge of chaos and excess. Bestiario de Lengüitas (Bestiary of Tonguelets), in fact, follows a script written by the artist herself for a future performance that may or may not take place. Drawings, costumes, sculptures, audio and video installations, wallpapers and a chorus of grotesque characters inhabit the exhibition space, which is presented as a stage that is ready to involve all the visitor’s senses in the experience. So, through a combination of visual and theatrical strategies and a strong element of humour, the artist invites us to call into question the ways in which we live in this world.
