In my selection, there is not necessarily any relation among the works, just an aesthetic interest in the pieces or the artists. For most of them, I have been collecting or know about their work and think they are worth following.

Rivane Neuenschwander, Monstra Marina, 2012, at Galeria Fortes Vilaça

Amazing installation!

Fernanda Gomes, Untitled, 2013, at Alison Jacques Gallery

One of my favorite artists. 

Milena Bonilla, An Enchanted Forest, 2013-2014, at Mor Charpentier

Tomás Saraceno, Air-Port-City/Cloud-City/7 Cloud Modules 30, 2013, at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery 

For me it’s always a pleasure to be able to admire pieces from Saraceno; this particular wood work is a very nice evolution, and a very interesting complement to his metal pieces.

Rirkrit Tiravanija, Untitled (the days of society is numbered/December 7, 2012), 2014, at Gavin Brown’s enterprise 

Johanna Calle, Chambacu Albalá, 2006-2007, at Casa Riegner 

Johanna Calle is one of the most important Colombian contemporary artists. Very poetic work. 

Erin Shirreff, Signatures, 2011, at Sikkema Jenkins & Co.

Recent discovery. Love the hypothetical reflection. 

Martin Boyce, A Library of Leaves (A Thousand Future Skies), 2014, at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery

Tobias Putrih, Macula Series/ PZ/ 0, 2014, at Galerija Gregor Podnar 

Simple cardboard, yet complex structure—very interesting for me! 

William Kentridge, Untitled (Rebus Forms), 2014, at Goodman Gallery

Great artist, great human being. His drawings and animations are amazing; I constantly keep his work in my mind.
