IVAN ARGOTE

somos

   For the Somos exhibition, the artist Ivan Argote asked the Oficina São João  to make concrete sculptures to be exhibited in the Galeria vermelho.

`On the ground floor, Argote manipulates the idea of the monument as a work constructed for the memorialist perpetuation of a person or fact relevant to some community. In Arco [Arc], the artist disassembles a circle of concrete of impactful proportions in six parts that are leaning against the walls and lying on the floor, as though they were lacking bases that could define them as self-supporting monuments. Argote’s monuments are fractured and celebrate the interruption of a circular history that could be tragically repeated.´ ( galeria vermelho)

   The construction of the work required several steps and constructive techniques. We produced 6 concrete arches to be assembled. The biggest challenge was to assembly the arches so they could fit inside the hub of the Galeria Vermelho
