Las fuerzas (The Forces)

Paola Buontempo

Las fuerzas (Paola Buontempo)


Like a subject at school drilled through the usual exercises and tests, only here it’s not the mind being moulded but the body. A body joined by another body, a small, fragile body that mustn’t grow. Learning how to be a jockey.


Paola Buontempo studied audiovisual communication at the Department of Fine Art at the Universidad Nacional de La Plata. Her shorts include Las instancias del vértigo (2010) and Los animales (2012); her photographs form part of the Premio Fundación Williams and the Salón Nacional de Artes Visuales.
