Argentina, 1961


From installation the work becomes wearable in a natural transfer, sometimes unstoppable and touching, as a dreamlike projection from sculpture becomes talisman, protection, poetic statement, affirmation of himself, and that he has in his daily choice to wear a flame or many small flames a sign of life and passion, a wing like a desire, a rose, a barbed wire – made harmless and precious – as a statement of strength and female affirmation, but not only: signs of a silent and light revolution, courageous and full of grace and wonder.
