argentinian artist eugenio cuttica displays one-hundred five fiberglass sculptures that stand atop white chairs and scale a ten-meter high sloping wall. called ataraxia, the project was originally on view in 2018 at the MAR museum in buenos aires and explores the way subjects achieve ‘balance and happiness’.

the exhibition also featured three large tulles with portraits and eight wooden boats and paintings intended by cuttica to reflect on fertility, abundance, the sublime qualities of argentinian landscapes. the installation ‘points to a calm beauty, a calm but agitating act, moves the spirit and can even cause fear. it is an art that refers to the observer’s consciousness in its own insignificance and in unity with nature’, describes the artist.
