Gyula Kosice is a myth of contemporary art. At 91, he’s making new works and insists on the idea of exhibiting them at Paris’ Pompidou Center.
Kosice, an essential Argentine visual artist, built his poetics with water and light as its founding elements, establishing fluidity and movement as a paradoxical affirmation towards sculpture: the firmness of form as a continent inhabited by subtle elements and eventful shifting. The author of a body of work that exceeds the plastic, Kosice has also published poetry and aesthetic theory, including the formulation of that urban utopia, pure image of the future, that is his hydrospace city. Founder of the Madí group, he was the author of its manifest and editor of the Arte Madí Universal magazine. The film brings up his intimate circle as well as the vision of colleagues and disciples, and the ecstatic gaze of a group of kids in one of the usual visits to his workshop. MA
