Art / Intricate And Gorgeous Textiles By Manuel Ameztoy
June 8, 2012
This installation is just gorgeous.
Argentinian artist Manuel Ameztoy has created a site-specific solo exhibition for Faena Arts Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina entitled Paraísos Desplegables (or Pop-up Paradises). The 2,066 square foot (630 square meter) installation space consists of various cut and non-woven fabrics affixed to surfaces within the gallery’s cathedral room. Ameztoy’s concept for ‘Pop-up Paradises’ was to translate an authentic landscape into something which may be removed from the place in which it derived its form as an artwork standing within the confines of an exhibition space, [bringing] to the cathedral room of the FAC a textile interpretation of a forest-like, moss-covered environment.
