Lives and works in Buenos Aires
Andrés Brück lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Brück holds a degree in Editing from the Escuela Nacional de Experimentación y Realización Cinematográfica (Enerc) and was a resident of Instituto Torcuato DiTella – two of the most experimental institutions in Argentina dedicated to the teaching of art. Brück has rapidly gained admiration and support of important names in the contemporary art world, such as Jorge Macchi, his former professor. With five solo shows in his curriculum, being one of them at Alberto Sendrós gallery, Brück is still exploring the most ordinary and strange aspects of postmodern life, combining references from the internet, puerile visions of sex, and historical research. In his work, the artist can, for example, melt down cartoon characters, deities, or jewish icons, employing various techniques, usually related to drawing. Tools with low aesthetic appeal, such as airbrush or 3D software, are subverted by Brück with a certain calculated precision in the construction of visual enigmas that are so bizarre that seem abstractions.
Brück’s twisted lines mark a style that has taken him to exhibit in different contexts, namely the outsider festival Babafestival, in Rome (2010), and the renowned gallery Ruth Benzacar (Curriculum 0, 2009), in Buenos Aires. His solo shows include Umbanda Dada (LOGO gallery, São Paulo, 2013), Avatares de la vida (Athenee Gallery, Buenos Aires, 2012), and La marca de la gorra (Alberto Sendros Gallery, Buenos Aires, 2010). In addition, his group shows include Bellos Jueves (Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires, 2014), Preguntame como (LOGO gallery, São Paulo, 2011), and Un humedal entre las piernas (Alberto Sendros Gallery, Buenos Aires, 2011). In 2010, Brück was the recipient of Fondo Nacional de las Artes Scholarship Fund Award.
