The paintings Parcelas Dominantes, Triangular AAA and Gama refer to the political situation in Argentina from 1972-1983. The unfair distribution of land, which led to social uprisings violently repressed by dictatorial power with the creation of a death squadron, the Triple A. These works, in their abstract and geometric appearance, hide a system of color codes invented by Jorge Orta. This code, where each color represents a historical, geographical, political or social situation, allows him to speak-out and continue to create despite the repression. . .

Diptych Cloud Chaises (2013). Through the manipulation and sculpting of water bottles into nebulous shapes, the series ‘Clouds’ explores the complexity of water cycles. The water bottle presents a paradox: a symbol of the inequality of access to one of our most vital resources, a planetary pollutant, yet the raw material is a vital commodity for recycling communities such as the Zabaleen ‘garbage people’, and a relevant construction material. #studioortalesmoulins #clouds #lucyjorgeorta

‘Sustainable Thinking’ is an exhibition which explores the need for a holistic approach to sustainability where anthropocentrism no longer jeopardizes the preservation of resources and the planet’s ecological balance. It champions the human ability to satisfy the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs (1987 Brundtland Report). We must be capable of ensuring in the future a quality of life that is not inferior to the current one - a global challenge, which can only be faced by means of profound actions from all fronts, including from the arts. . . On view in three museums across Florence you will find our sculptures that resonate with themes ranging from the quality of water and air, to the preservation of our natural resources. OrtaWater Fluvial Interval (2005) is on exhibition @museonovecento April 11 to July 4, 2019. ‬Originally commissioned by @bevilacqualamasa and @boijmans for the @venice.art.biennale 2005. . . #lucyjorgeorta #studioorta #water #ortawater #canoe #sculpture #sustainablethinking #studioortalesmoulins

Nexus Architecture, 1997 The workers overalls are attached via channels and zippers creating linear assemblages thar defy classification by the usual social markers and give form to the social not the individual body.

Deeply saddened to hear of the death of Okwui Enwezor. Thanks to his Jo’burg Biennale and curator Jen Budney we created one of our most moving workshops in the Worker’s Library with a group of women at the Usindiso shelter - Nexus Architecture, 1997. The 2nd Johannesburg Biennale ‘Trade Routes: History and Geography’ brought poignant migrant workers’ voices into the public sphere and beyond the beautiful nexus suits we made together, it brought forth the possibility of solidarity in a fractured environment were solidarity can be difficult to muster and maintain.

Lucy’s collective wear reminds me of collective body practices which exist in the world of survival. The survival of most animals depends on running with the pack. The concept of the pack is linked to animality. Lucy’s collective wear represents a denunciation of man’s return to the pack. At a time when we are told that men are free, emancipated, totally autonomous, she tells us that, on the contrary, there is a threat and that man is regrouping. We refer to this new phenomenon in terms of gangs, new tribes, commandos. Paul Virilio #paulvirilio . Nexus Architecture Intervention Berlin, 1998 #nexusarchitecture #march #climatemarch #berlinwall

Fabulae Romanae, Tunneler (2012). In the film Fabulae Romanae our mythological characters interrogate social, anthropological and philosophical themes questioning art’s critical force in recounting and addressing the emergencies of contemporary living. They are spirits of the past and present, these contemporary sentinels silently interact with the city of Rome and its landscape through the poetic verse by eco-poet Mario Petrucci. The Tunneler and the Myth Maker live in the ancient Roman gardens of the Villa Gregoriana.
