Bastón presidencial (Presidential scepter) (2021) by Gabri AlarcónFundación Itaú Argentina
Gabri Alarcón's object is a translation of the presidential cane into a crochet work, an operation in which the artist translates firm objects from the heteronormative political regime into soft tissue.
A parody of symbols as a form of poetic justice.
A Necessary Overflow is a staging in which the artist destroys objects that she herself makes with her hands.
Daughter and granddaughter of women who, like many others, suffered gender violence in the family, Ariela Naftal turns the urgency of the break into a metaphor.

Reglas de camuflaje y supervivencia (Camouflage and survival rules) (2020) by Nico Rodríguez SosaFundación Itaú Argentina
The photographs by Nico Rodríguez Sosa from Misiones are a record of a performance where costumes and movements merge, queerifying the landscape. A scene where desire harmonizes everything that the heteronorm oppresses and despises.

A work made with forbidden images that began to circulate in the early 1980s and became tools of understanding, acceptance and pride.
In The Day I Got a Washing Machine, a woman in an "office" outfit walks through the mountains while she gets rid of all her belongings. Milagros Ailén Baraldi's video proposes us to rethink what we lose when trying to have everything under control. A metaphor of liberation.

The power of the image and its fetishization.
