Beatriz Gerenstein, Biography
Beatriz Gerenstein’s sculptures could be defined by her journey to explore the daily anxieties of the human being. In such a world we live in, full of wars and selfishness, violence, political cynicism, so much greed and constant threats to the environment, Beatriz Gerenstein has chosen the other side of the coin. Her sculptures talk about the human condition, love, friendship, anguish, pleasure, joy, pain and spirituality.
In Gerenstein words: “We could struggle a lifetime attempting to change reality, to modify it, trying to break and transcend the limits imposed by the space- time. Maybe the happiness we all are looking for is not at the end of the journey but in the process, the work that takes to get there.”
The strength, beauty and social content of her sculptures have opened the doors to Gerenstein to participate in significant art events. Currently on view at the exhibition “Personal Structures” during the 57th Venice Biennale is her installation “The Objects of Desire.” In 2016, she took part of the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale and was the subject of a solo exhibition at National Museum of Art in Havana, Cuba. Her work was exhibited during 2015 in the 56th Venice Biennale and the 12th Havana Biennale (la bienal de la Habana) as well as in 2013 in the 9th Florence Biennale.
Beatriz Gerenstein was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She lives and works in Miami, USA
