Over the past few decades Victor Grippo has stood out in the art world as one of the leading figures of the Conceptual art group practicing in Argentina. A chemist by training, Grippo took a keen interest in the connections linking art, life and science. Furthermore, in his work he used organic materials in their raw state, tools, and everyday objects.
At Inhotim, Grippo's work integrates the group of permanent installations and fosters a dialogue with works by Hélio Oiticica (1939-1980), Cildo Meireles and Tunga, among others - all of them contemporaries of Grippo who participated in the renewal of artistic thought in Brazil.
