Nicola Costantino was born in Rosario (1964) where she studied Fine Arts, produced and exhibited her first works, and also learned the new sculpture techniques that influenced the concept of her production; the molds of human and animal bodies cast from the original that characterize her work. In 1994 with the support of Pablo Suárez, she attended the Barracas Workshop of Antorchas Foundation coordinated by Suárez and Benedit. Shortly after moving to Buenos Aires, she spent a year in Houston, Texas, in the Core Program for Artists, where she began producing silicon human skin to make dresses and lavish coats with human hair necks. Nicola learned design and haute couture in her adolescence working with her mother in her clothes factory, which allowed her to create “Peletería humana” [Human Furriery] a work of the finest quality.

” In my work I’m dealing with human body, human perception, the way we see and project ourselves at the outside world. I am particularly interested in different states of consciousness, their impact on the perception of time and space – what we call reality. I believe that every state of mind can affect in which way the matter will appear. Dreams as altered state of consciousness together with the symbolism of dreams (unique symbols of each individual and how we communicate with ourselves through them) is another important part of my work. The way in which we exist in this framework, for me is a huge source of ideas and insight into the human being.” – Milan Nenezic

” I spent my elementary school years in rural Ohio—in a pile of animal parts. My friend’s dad had a VCR with three tapes one of which was The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It was my favorite and not just because the fictional events occurred on my birthday. It has a scene where one of the victims stumbles into a room strewn with bones—mostly animal—at once terrifying and rustic in the yellow Texas sun. Not to be outdone my friend and I discovered a boneyard while roaming a nearby farm and harvested some cow skulls that we cleaned with bleach. There was also a fur dealer who lived nearby just past the creek. In our only encounter I watched him remove a fox’s heart and hand it to me. But even that didn’t prepare me to find a severed eye in my mailbox. Lowering the mailbox door I found the milky sphere suspended in a jar of formaldehyde. It was from our veterinarian who was indulging my predilection for the anatomical. Pressing my memory for other experiences involving entrails I come up empty. But I remember my friend telling me that his dad had a fourth videotape: Adult Cartoons.” – Alred Steiner

Bogdan Rață is a sculptor from the young generation of the artists. His new hybrid realism is finding new genetic forms of human anatomy in search of a new posthumanism. Based in a “forgotten future”, his work reproduces “replicas of reality” reminiscent of the virtual world in the film Blade Runner. Rata multiplies human parts (fingers, ears, and so on) and combines them into new life forms. The newborn creatures seem to result from strange experiments with the human body in an esthetics lab.
