13th June – 13th July 2013
Exhibition as part of the Lyon BD Festival 2013.
This exhibition is dedicated to five Argentinian artists from the new movement of self-published comics in Argentina. Their works have in common that they are inspired by the world of childhood, murky memories hidden between the pages of family albums with forgotten or unknown faces.
The artists Antonella Andreoletti, Manuel Depetris, Santiago Fredes, Pedro Mancini and Jorge Quien offer works that transit between the self-referential and what is inherent in the whole. Between illustration and comic strip, the underlying stories are written in the mind of the viewer confronted with the sensuality of the overlapping materials. The strangeness and fragility that emerge from these works also speak to the concern of this young generation of artists in search of roots and future.
