Santiago Taccetti

 

The Artist

Santiago Taccetti was born in 1974 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He lives and works in Berlin.
In Taccetti's work, the medium is at the core of his concerns. He chooses his materials for their chemical compositions, lending them—at the chemical level, at least—some agency beyond the artist's control. As a result, the rippled, relief-like surfaces of his canvases situate the pieces somewhere between painting and sculpture, reversing the relationship between form and surface found in his earlier sculptures. Santiago Taccetti's series of "Untiled (140 boulogne)" refers to the way in Latin America the roofs of houses, bus stops, train stations, "parrillas" (bbq joints), even trucks and buses are patched-up by the owners themselves. Following a similar process, insulate aluminum slices are patched with bitumen, giving birth to a series of pictorial works which dignify the chaotic stratification of those repairing attempts.
