Cuban artist duo Los Carpinteros, comprised of Marco Castillo and Dahoberto Rodriguez presented their sculptural work in the Molinas room of Faena Arts Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Los Carpinteros assembled a re-appropriation of large-scale industrial he piper Comanche aircraft in the center of the bright exhibition space stands, the small vehicle is decorated by a collection of wooden arrows which seem to have been shot into the belly and wings of the plane. The piece is representative of the culture shock and disorientation experienced by the many communities when confronted with the endless advancement of technology. These structures seem to rise from the gallery floor, alluding to the precariousness of finding one’s home within an urban center and the disorientation associated with this stereotypically chaotic environment.
