PIEDRAS presents the first solo exhibition of Carrie Bencardino (b. 1993, Buenos Aires - Argentina), in which she displays an installation of 50 paintings made between 2017 and 2021 and an intervention in collaboration with the artist and musician León (@naturandemonto)
Carrie Bencardino’s work is developed mainly in the field of painting and performance and investigates the visual discourses present in the different scenes that she frequents from an early age: the under metalhead, the clubs, the trash images of the Internet, the iconography of bands and queer are some of the frequent elements in her works, through which she constructs her own story of who inhabits these spaces, their phenomena and their contradictions.
The autobiographical is presented as a possible exponent of situations that, isolated from the context that justifies their existence, invite us to think on agitation as a way of inhabiting the contemporary world.
