The Musée départemental d’art contemporain de Rochechouart opens this spring with an exhibition by Argentinian artist Eduardo T. Basualdo (b. 1977), his first major show in a museum. A dark streak of surrealism runs through many of the artist’s mysterious works that are steeped in theatre, literary and psychoanalysis roots. Recurring themes such as ambiguity of natural forms and the impact of physical forces often coalesce as they did in The Silence of The Sirens (Le Silence des sirènes), a full-sized ebbing and flowing aquatic scene which caused a stir at the 11th Lyon Biennale in 2011.
