RIVAS & WLOCH Duo formed by Paula Rivas (1976), visual artist trained in sculpture in Argentina and Italy, and Christian Wloch (1971), visual artist trained in visual arts, film, video, multimedia and new technologies in Argentina. Both artists have been working together since 2005 and have traveled a path of experimentation incorporating different techniques for the creation of each of their artworks, doing research in new spatio-temporal geometries that are materialized as kinetic, ligth and experimental artworks inspired by the visible and invisible cosmos. Astronomy is one of the great sources of inspiration for Rivas & Wloch, to which they dedicate many hours of study. The idea of transcending the traditional concept of time and space is one of the lines of research in their works through the study and generation of new dynamic geometries.Their artworks have been exhibitedd in cultural centers, museums and galleries in America and Europe, have received different awards throughout their career and are part of large public and private collections.
