ANTHONY AMES: OBJECT-TYPE LANDSCAPES

Casa Curutchet, La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina

September 5-25, 2015

Anthony Ames: Object-Type Landscapes
exhibition is curated by Curatorial Project in collaboration with Anthony Ames Architect of Atlanta, Georgia. The exhibition focuses on Ames’s unique work, which is deeply inspired by modern vocabulary of Le Corbusier. Ames’s work is a continuation and adaptation of Le Corbusier’s visual and spatial discoveries, and design strategies. In addition to primarily residential projects the architect experiments with reductive poetic paintings, three-dimensional sculptural compositions, rugs, as well as furniture and porcelains, exploring infinite possibilities in the aesthetics of modern domestic architecture. In his work, Ames focuses on such important issues as continuity, traditions, and creating a sense of balance and comfort by operating within the familiar. The exhibition gathers his paintings, sculptural compositions, and porcelain pieces within the entire setting of Le Corbusier-designed Casa Curutchet (La Plata, Buenos Aires, 1948-53), a house conceived as an exploded purist painting. The exhibition coincides with the XV Buenos Aires Architecture Bienal.
