Leer en español: Argentina: conoce la exposición que te dejará sin palabras

The exhibition is built from images held in columns of silences and words, it alludes to the myth of the Tower of Babel and brings up the existence of the other with which it is difficult to understand. The exhibition proposes the opportunity to perceive, interpret and enjoy the material, color and textures made word.

The exhibition does not intend to make the spectator forget what hurts, on the contrary, it gives him a name, summons to look at who dares to let go of everything he kept quiet and should have said, all of the above because it is impossible to escape from what that does not disappear.

The artist invitates to think about the immigrant of the Tower of Babel and his desire to speak in their language in a place where another is spoken.
