Art and Literature
A look at the body as the place where the aesthetic and ideological paradigms of our time are inscribed. The body as geography and a particular map of increasingly plural, complex and transitory identities. A body that transcends its biological forms and functions to become a laboratory of hybridations and recreations of traditional categories and roles. A postmodern reconfiguration that fractures typologies and mandates to produce subjects as multiple as they are fragmentary. A conglomerate of cosmetic, surgical, and medial alchemies that formulate particular statements about a state of the world. Technologies and mythologies that cross the body and turn it into the territory where diverse and mobile identities are constructed, as a metaphor and main synthesis of the contemporary. Leandro Allochis presents #elcuerposimbólico as an Open Source Artistic Experience, an innovative curatorial proposal that expands the paradigms of the traditional art exhibition to take the work to an expanded space of visibility and transit. A visual and participative experience where images, texts and bodies circulate both in the physical space of ELSI DEL RIO Arte Contemporáneo as well as in virtual platforms and/or in the public space overcoming the space-time limitations.
