COLLAGE AND SCRAWL, ARGENTINA

Region/Concept: Latin America, Movement (Gesture)
Sub-concepts: Collection, Scrawls, Archive
Description: Writer Osvaldo Lamborghini’s Teatro proletario de cámara (Proletarian chamber theater), a collection of mostly pornographic images cut from books and magazines, over which he has written, painted, scribbled, and drawn.

Theory: The appropriation of found objects lends itself to strategies of dérive. But how to register the traces of that drift? By registering the process of collage and manipulation. By insisting on cataloguing where the object begins and how it is transformed. By archiving the temporal process of intervention. The image signifies less and indexes more. It becomes a stage for a minor stage for obscene gestures, private actions, a chamber theater.
