An exhibition by Italian artist Ryts Monet entitled WORLD MAP (about sustainable fashion) can be seen in Buenos Aires as part of the group exhibition Rompecabezas curated by Diana B. Wechsler and Benedetta Casini.
WORLD MAP is an initiative of the Italian Cultural Institute of Buenos Aires, in collaboration with BIENALSUR and the support of the Italian Embassy and the Austrian Embassy in Buenos Aires. The exhibition can be visited until the 31 December 2023 at MUNTREF Centro de Arte Contemporáneo y Museo de la Inmigración.
The work WORLD MAP originates from a reflection on the imbalances in economic and political relations at an environmental level. Ryts Monet chose the image of the planisphere made by subtraction, wearing down and consuming a denim fabric support until generating the image of an exhausted and shredded Earth. The work was exhibited to the public for the first time at the Fondazione Pistoletto Cittadellarte in Biella.
