Lolo & Sosaku
1977 Buenos Aires, Argentina
1976 Tokyo, Japan

Lolo and Sosaku investigate the possibilities of sculpture as an expanded field. The nexus that unites his works is the search for an object in contact with his surroundings and with the spectator. An object that seeks friction, and tension.

His work moves between different languages such as sculpture, installation, kinetic art and painting. Its modus operandi: to constitute itself as a subject, and from its machinic materiality, to point to transcendence, to mysticism and to the unknown.

Encompassing installation, drawing, painting, sculpture, performance, sound and video, Lolo & Sosaku’s wide-ranging practice explores the capacity of creating new meanings through the association of the objects, the surroundings and the spectator. Taking inspirations from ancient Greek sculptures, from Dada and Bauhaus School to Jean Tinguely, Alexander Calder and Jean Dubuffet, Lolo & Sosaku soon altered
the traditional artistic practice concentrating on the possibilities inherent in the materials they used – often metal, wood, glass – incorporating music and sound. Electronic music is certainly the highlight of their inspiration as a complex language translated into sound installations and sculpture compositions. Shapes, lines, materials and sounds are assembled together into motion sculptures that perform taking their own voice in an unpredictable continuous transformation. Exploring many artistic horizons and redefining boundaries, their interest is the energy and the hidden forces that guide life in our technological age.

Lolo and Sosaku’s work has been exhibited and performed, amongst others, at Museo
Reina Sofia (Madrid, Spain), MACBA Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona
(Barcelona, Spain), PSA Museum Power Station of Art (Shanghai, China), MIS
Museu da Imagem e do Som (São Paulo, Brasil), Fundation Gaspar (Barcelona,
Spain), Fundação Casa França Brasil (Rio de Janeiro, Brasil), Sónar (Barcelona,
Spain), Matadero (Madrid, Spain), Palace of Culture (Iasi, Romania), MAVA Museo
de Arte en Vidrio de Alcorcón (Alcorcón, Spain), O Art Center (Shanghai, China), Luis
