Desesperación y aislamiento

About Guillermo Kuitca

Descended from immigrants and raised during the brutal period of military dictatorship known as the “Argentine Revolution” (1966–73), Guillermo Kuitca produces powerful paintings, sculptures, drawings, and installations resonant with themes of isolation, dislocation, and loneliness. Though almost always devoid of humans, his works have a strong sense of human presence, with motifs like airport baggage carousels, maps, apartment floor plans, and theater seating charts running throughout his many creations. As he explains, his works hold “the truth, the story, the past, the experience.

Argentinean, b. 1961, Buenos Aires, Argentina, based in Buenos Aires, Argentina
