Junín, Argentina, 1936 – Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2002
One of the main names of Argentinian conceptual art, Victor Grippo dedicated a good part of his production to the investigation of traditional oppositions, such as art-science, nature-culture, real-artificial, as a way to broaden our awareness regarding the world and how we can change it. His installations gather daily objects displaced from their usual functions and displayed in such a way as to create systems with a logic of their own.
Process of energy generation through very simple technical resources are frequent in his works. One example is the use of potatoes as a raw material.
Among his main exhibitions are his participation in the biennials of São Paulo (Brazil), Paris (France), Havana (Cuba), and Venice (Italy), in addition to the Kassel Documenta (Germany).
