Lot Details

Contemporary Argentinian artist, Graciela Sacco, is known for her photography and video and installation art which typically features strong socio-political imagery. Her subject matter serves as metaphors for some of the most acute issues of contemporary society such as homelessness, lack of education, corrupt governments, and crime, to name a few. Through her in depth experimentation with the technique of Heliography, Sacco has successfully transfered her original or appropriated photographic images onto a wide range of supports: from paper and canvas to rubber, leather, wood, glass, stone, cardboard, plastic and metal. 'Cuerpo a Cuerpo' is a perfect example of her masterful manipulation of the technique.
Sacco has represented Argentina at severals Biennales including Venice 2001, Havana 2000/97, Mercosur 1997 and Sao Pablo 1996. She has been invited to the 2004 Shanghai Biennale, exhibited her work at the New World Museum in Houston (2004) and exhibited in Art Basel Miami (2004).
Her work has been included in major exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world including: Chile, Denmark, Argentina, Guatemala, México, Brasil, Spain,England and France.
Sacco’s images can be seen in the public Collections of the Bronx Museum of the Arts in New York, The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and the Museum of Art in Ft. Lauderdale.
