Gonzalo Elvira, artist represented by RocioSantaCruz, participates in the exhibition Memoria del Porvenir in the Museum of Contemporary Art of Castilla y Léon (MUSAC). The exhibition will be open to the public until the 1st of May 2022.
Lo imborrable, taking its title from the book by Juan José Saer, is a series of 10 ink drawings on paper which reproduce the covers of books that were banned in Argentina during the dictatorship from 1976 to 1983. Through this series, Elvira highlights the violence of the dictatorship and its psychological repercussions for generations of Argentinians. The act of drawing with ink is a significant one; in a poetic gesture, the artist seems to want to record in his memory the content and the titles of the books that constituted freedoms stolen by the authoritarian regime.
