LILIANA PORTER. DIALOGUES AND DISOBEDIENCES
The Argentine artist Liliana Porter is one of the most lucid and original creators working today. Since the 1970s, she has gradually created a universe of her own, with solid and fascinating proposals for rethinking conventions by playing with spatial subversions, unexpected dialogues and disturbances to proportions. She is represented in the collections of major international museums and is an invited artist at this year’s Venice Biennale.
Porter works across a very wide creative spectrum that encompasses painting, installation art, printmaking, video, drawing, sculpture, theatre, etc. The personal world she depicts is astonishing and is permeated by her extremely refined wit, intelligent sense of irony and highly individual subtlety. She offers thought-provoking proposals for and about a world that needs to be narrated afresh. To this end, she shatters it, sets it awry, even attacks it, displaying extraordinary insightfulness at all times.
