Buenos Aires Exhibition by Martin Errichiello, the winner of the Premio Italia Argentina for art

The audio-visual installation “Il tempo che vivi è più forte di te” (“The Time You Live is Stronger than You”) by Martin Errichiello, on show at the Italian Cultural Institute in Buenos Aires from 14 June, draws inspiration from the theme of exploring the body as a territory and as a source of political, civil and aesthetic reflection. It is the artist’s first solo exhibition on the American continent and is the fruit of the work that he performed during his artist-in-residence period in Buenos Aires as the winner of the Premio Italia Argentina for art. 

The Award, which is the fruit of an agreement between the Italian Foreign Ministry and the Ministry of Culture of Argentina, with the cooperation of the Italian Cultural Institute and the Istituto Garuzzo per le Arti Visive, awards 4 artist-in-residence schemes to emerging artists, two Argentinian and two Italian. For Italy, in addition to Errichiello, the prize was also awarded to Diego Cibelli, who spent a month in Buenos Aires concomitantly with the ArteBa contemporary art show. The two Argentinian winners will instead be hosted in Turin during the Artissima art fair.

The installation on display is freely drawn from the old fairy tale “L’Aveugle e le Boiteux” by André de La Vigne of which the artist stages a personal filmed remake produced with local workers and the collaboration of Walter Lo Votrico and Sergio Sotelo, two actors with visual and motor impairments at their debut performance. Naples-born Martin Errichiello, 30, concentrates his artistic research on multimedia materials including videos, photographs and installations, with a special focus on historical and geopolitical themes and narratives.
