GABRIEL CHAILE

BORN 1985, San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina
LIVES&WORKS Buenos Aires, Argentina and Lisbon, Portugal

The Argentinian artist uses ancient and modern traditions to build a peculiar itinerary touching diverse topics, such as local culture and conceptualism. Anthropology, sacrality, politics, pre-Colombian culture and archetypal symbology mix in a critic/poetic blend. His art, much of it large-sized, can give voice to a community concealed by official history and by power structures. For The Milk of Dreams the artist exhibits a series of five large clay sculptures that take the form of hybrid man-animal furnaces, here arranged to evoke a temple, a factory, or a beehive: an expression of the body’s capacity to create community and, in the family context, to give and take care.
