In “Arquitopía”, metal scraps, carton, fabrics, wood blocs and other construction waste are transformed into powerful compositions that inspire us and at the same time invite us to reflect about where do non-useable residues end.
With this exhibition, ART U READY makes a call for action that shows a current problematic of our society and the need to acquire a greater awareness around sustainability in the architecture field with a special focus in generated waste. The artist Sergio Femar transforms this elements into art and simultaneously in a transforming action; his work brings life to debris and gives them a second life thanks to an interdisciplinary and intuitive exploration of materials. His body of work ranges between flexible and static, minimalism and expressionism, unpolluted and neglected. This way, he maintains a constant tension between the different elements that compose his work.
The exhibition will take place at the headquarters of ART U READY, el Invernadero, a space from the second half of the 19th century, hidden in the courtyard of an emblematic historical building in 11 San Lorenzo Street.
