Waking up after a sleepless night, looking at the pictures of the pieces showed at the exhibition, reading books randomly and remembering… Everything reappears along with a passage of Marcelo Mathey, the writer. He says that when he finds a beautiful place he fixes his gaze there to distinguish the small parts of it, or when looking at a house he tries to observe the people who live there. This is an almost accurate brief of the exhibition held at Galería Siesta in Barcelona that brings us Argentine Jewelry closer in the framework of the Barcelona Jewelry Week.
Those artists showing their “souths” full of landscapes, spots outlining thoughts, inhabited places whose boundariesfade away while connecting stories and hemispheres of a feeling that can´t be catalogued.
