Jorge Macchi and Los Carpinteros at Peter Kilchmann Gallery

June 9 – July 25, 2012
Gallery Peter Kilchmann | Zurich, Switzerland

Jorge Macchi
Galerie Peter Kilchmann is pleased to present new works by Argentinean artist Jorge Macchi. The artist was born in Buenos Aires in 1963 and continues to live and work there.

“Light and Weight” is the third  single exhibition of Jorge Macchi at Galerie Peter Kilchmann. The title “Light and Weight” can be understood in two ways, with “Light” referring both to the visual sensation and the definition of weight – lightness as opposed to heaviness. The double literal sense of the term takes us straight to the center of Jorge Macchiʼs work. His objects, drawings and installations can always be viewed and read is different ways. In the exhibition this becomes apparent from the start, as one enters the gallery space and encounters a series of small and medium-sized works on paper. In his drawings and watercolor paintings, Jorge Macchi uses the fluidity of the medium to capture images as he envisions them. Macchiʼs drawings are above all simple and detached from a specific context.

Los Carpinteros
Galerie Peter Kilchmann is pleased to start its liaison with Los Carpinteros with a presentation of new works in the rear project space. The collective Los Carpinteros is made up of Cuban artists Marco Antonio Castillo Valdés and Dagoberto Rodríguez Sánchez, who live and work in Havana and Madrid.  A large single exhibition of Los Carpinteros at the gallery will follow in the summer of 2013.
