Liliana Porter at the MALBA

(Photo by Juan Nosé)

Liliana Porter is an Argentine contemporary artist that works with mixed media. Her artwork deals with topics such as time, space, and the dual nature of destruction and creation. Many of her pieces include inanimate objects that she finds in flea markets and later gives new meaning through art. She also works with photography, engravings, drawings and video.

El hombre con el hacha y otras situaciones breves (the man with the axe and other temporary situations) is the name of the MALBA exhibit that is being displayed and portrays different characters carrying out actions that build the idea of paradox and ambiguity.

The exhibition is taking place until the 18th of November.  The museum is open from Thursday to Monday from midday to 8pm, and to 9pm on Wednesdays. Tickets are 40 pesos. Avenida Figueroa Alcorta 3415, Palermo. 4808-6500.
