SURDICO: Primera Bienal de Arte Contemporáneo Puerto Varas – a Nine-Photo Tour

Puerto Varas, Chile, March 2013

Facebook reminded me today that SURDICO: The Second Biennial of Contemporary Art in Puerto Varas, Chile, will be held next Spring. That provided the perfect opportunity to finally publish this small gallery of images snapped when I stumbled up the venue –almost literally– for the first edition when I passed through Puerto Varas in March 2013.

Held in a what is apparently a reclaimed warehouse on the grounds of the local train station, it was a modest set up as many such first time efforts are. Nonetheless there were several interesting pieces and installations, starting with the Trojan horse-like sculpture outside the front door, and this toilet paper-wielding sculpture just to the inside of the entrance.

It took place from December through the end of February and featured the works of forty invited artists presented in three cycles. I caught the tail end of the third. Enjoy!  [Facebook page]
