The Horse Problem: Art Installation by Claudia Fontes

Published May 31, 2017

“The Horse Problem” is a beautiful sculptural piece by Argentinian visual artist Claudia Fontes.

“The installation, which also features 400 white rocks scattered around the two central figures, is inspired by 19th-century icons around which Argentina’s national presence was falsely based. Fontes uses these borrowed characters in her present work to examine how nations develop across history, especially in her own country of Argentina.”

“By highlighting how the destinies of the human and horse species have been intertwined through exploitation from the very moment that horses were domesticated, The Horse Problem offers in a flash, a way to reinterpret history in a different way, a chance to construct an alternative narrative for our future as species”.

— Gabriel Giorgi
