“Who am I after fear” by Antonella Agesta is exhibited at Ungallery

Ungallery inaugurated two must-see exhibitions: Who am I after fear, by Antonella Agesta, and The foam and cream of the citizen, by Damián Santa Cruz.

On Saturday, May 11, it was inaugurated Who am I after fearof Antonella Agestain Ungallerythe great gallery of La Boca which occupies a former naval depot. On this occasion, the exhibition is a collaborative project with the Grasa gallery: both came together to exhibit the unmissable works of Agesta, who resides in Paris.

With her oil paintings, the artist represents aspects of our Argentina from a fabulous, dreamlike world linked to her own life as a migrant. With subtlety, she takes elements of Latin American magical realism and alludes to harsh social issues and other more personal ones.

From a formal point of view, it is part of the Latin American pictorial tradition and takes up magical realism from literature. At first glance, it is possible to find a certain apparent innocence in his canvases. However, upon getting closer one discovers different symbolic layers that call that premise into question. Behind that tenderness, there is a disturbing world, populated with supernatural elements: mirrors that reflect double personalities, zooms of different parts of the body, images of our capybara-colored River Plate, the body itself that becomes pure strangeness.

In addition, the pop up is presented in Room 2 The foam and cream of the citizenof Damian Santa Cruz. It is a light and sound installation with an Argentine flag woven on a loom made with found materials.. The flag – an element on which the artist reflects – was part of the exhibition for the 40 years of democracy “Echoes of persistence”, in the Jesuit ranch of Jesús María, in the province of Córdoba.
