The exhibition, opening during the Gallery Weekend Berlin 2017, featured one major – and stunningly contemporary – installation from the seventies.
This installation engages conceptual questions like the dissolution of the work of art and the experience of immediate contact as an erosion and critical interpellation of
material and social contexts. The installation was exhibited recently at the MALBA in Buenos Aires in 2015. The work Obra que desaparece cuando el espectador trata de acercarse (propuesta III) / Work that Disappears when the Viewer Tries to Approach It (Proposal III) attest to Burga’s interest in the immaterial and in drawing as the basis for the interpretation of her installations.
