Octavio Podestá (Uruguay, 1929)

(Guideline: do not climb)

Octavio Podestá creates his sculptures mainly from discarded metal and wooden pieces coming from industrial leftovers. In search of playful movements Podestá creates his living figures by using mechanics. He is the first Uruguayan to incorporate psychical movement in his work. Even if this sculpture does not have any moving elements, the positioning of its parts generates certain tension and the idea of movement.

Alan Sonfist (United States, 1946)

(Guideline: look and touch but do not climb)

Alan Sonfist is a pioneer in the Land Art Movement. In his art he tells stories of cultural and natural habitats. Through his art he awakens thoughts about our responsibility in conserving our environment. Today, after 50 years of career, he continues to spread his message of ecological sustainability and respect for the fragility of nature through his work.

Diego Santurio (Uruguay, 1977)
CONEXA, 2014

(Please do not climb)

Growing up, Diego’s father worked as a metallurgist. As a kid Diego was able to play around with the material and learned in a natural way, how to use and appreciate a vast range of metals. In his sculptures strength and lightness coexist.
Conexa is a combination of lines that, as strokes, they draw the location creating a pattern that far from trying to be one, wants not to be anything, leaving room for sensory experience. The ethereal and delicate aspects rise from the ground and they impose themselves on the dimensions of the landscape without altering it, but belonging to it. Conexa persuades people to access and explore the barely defined interior which is possibly connected to something else.

Peter Schwickerath (Germany, 1942)

Peter in his own words: "The relations of mass and space, of volume and space as well as the effects of plane directions in space are the subjects of my work. The plane as limitation of the body and the lines, color and structure of the material are the means.

My specific interest is devoted to the multiplicity of possibilities within a field of formal simplicity and austerity".

Luca Benítes (Brazil, 1981)

(Guideline: do not climb)

Luca Benitez´s DE CURVAS AL VACÍO is a homage to the architect Le Corbusier, referring to his mural in the Capitolio Complex, in Chandigarh, India. In this piece, architecture and art meets. Benitez thought about emptiness as a starting point for this artwork.

Humberto Cazorla (Venezuela, 1951)

Series: Tributo a los apiarios

In Humberto’s own words: ‘The lines in my creations are precise, neat, jealously keeping the rhythm; with harmonious visual chords of sounds and shapes, in symbiosis born out of color with ferrous oxide.’

Daniel Papaleo (Argentina, 1968)

(Guideline: do not climb)

In his work, Daniel Papaleo investigates how someone who is visually impaired can feel visual art through other senses. Sound travels in vibrations over the piece of art and discloses its shape to the person. Papaleo wants to create sculptures that allow inclusion with the visually impaired, where they become the ones with a gift and not a difficulty.
The sculpture invites the public to interact with it in an inclusive way. You are now part of the sculpture.

Jannine Wolfsohn (Uruguay, 1966)

(Guideline: look and touch but do not climb)

The cat is skating on a ramp. He is about to jump. He feels the vertigo before the fall or the elevation. The sculpture allows that moment to be frozen in time, it captures the abstraction of movement. A state that makes the eye of the beholder travel, anticipate and project the states in which the matter represents the action.
