Buenos Aires: Jorge Miño, Sin fin
La Galería Foster Catena presents the exhibition Sin Fin (“Endless”) by Jorge Miño. The large-format images and stop-motion projection on display are visions of an ephemeral architecture that evoke both infinity and the ever-changing perception of what the spectator sees before him.
As one climbs the seemingly endless stairway at the Foster Catena gallery to access the exhibition, the first image one encounters is that of a stairway, reflecting the feeling of ascent. (Mirrors installed throughout the gallery also reflect the title of the exhibition.) Entitled “Fine Art,” the image is particularly beautiful. The white of the photograph fades into the white of the printing paper; the image could almost be a drawing. The staircase it depicts appears as a whirlwind of steps whose beginning, end and aquatic texture remain a mystery. The image has been inverted, and this nuance reinforces the sensation of floating.
After a promising opening, the exhibition presents a series of images that, unfortunately, take the show in another direction. A few noteworthy ones flirt with abstraction, but overall the artist should have continued to explore the themes announced by the exhibition’s powerful introductory piece.
