"Osvaldo Puente: Home Sweet Home"
2001-10-21 until 2001-10-28
Osvaldo Puente works with soil as a symbol of the everday mans desire, to secure a piece earth. And the distance covered in which to find it. A significant percentage of the world population has migrated over time, and you could safely say that just about everyones ancestory came from somewhere other than where they live today.
In the piece Home Sweet Home Osvaldo questions the comparisions and choices between nomad and sedentary existense, cross migration, settling, and adaptation of people from one land, culture and language to another. The journey in search for land for what ever reason that may be.
Puente has been exhibiting since 1987 throughout , Argentina, Netherlands, Spain, Belguim, Cuba, and Germany. Including the Lüdwig Forum für internationale Kunst, Aachen in 1994-98, Kunstcentrum Sittard, Niederlande, Lebenlesen, Käthe-Kollowitz-Museum, Köln, 28 Freie Seiten, G.A.M.E.S. of Art (Installation), Mönchengladbach.
