MURAL DE SIQUIEROS EN EL MUSEO DEL BICENTENARIO

Ejercicio Plástico es el mural realizado por el artista mexicano David Alfaro Siqueiros, junto a los artistas argentinos Lino Enea Spilimbergo, Antonio Berni y Juan Carlos Castagnino, y el escenógrafo uruguayo Enrique Lázaro.

Esta obra fue realizada en 1933, en el sótano de la quinta Los Granados, ubicada en Don Torcuato, Provincia de Buenos Aires, perteneciente a Natalio Botana, dueño y fundador del diario Crítica. La obra resulta paradójica en varios sentidos: es la única pintura mural realizada por Siqueiros que carece totalmente de contenido político-social.

El rescate de Ejercicio Plástico se manifestó de forma concreta cuando en el año 2003 la obra fue declarada Bien de Interés Histórico Artístico Nacional. Se decide trasladarlo al Museo del Bicentenario, obra del estudio B4FS, Bares, Becker, Ferrari arquitectos.

Nuestro proyecto, una caja de vidrio que contenga esta pieza artística con los resguardos y estándares de conservación internacionales. Para ello desarrollamos una piel de vidrio a medida, con el apoyo de la empresa Technal en Francia, que nos permitió desarrollar un prisma  pulido de vidrio con cabeceras íntegramente, estructura y cerramiento, desarrolladas en vidrio. Hubo que desarrollar una lógica constructiva a medida para gestionar el traslado del mural, su descenso y montaje dentro de este gran espacio.

Como se puede apreciar en la sección, se desarrolló un sistema espacial de fundaciones, ventilaciones, climatización, humidificación e iluminación que no dañaran al mural y al mismo tiempo permitan disfrutarlo en todo su explendor.

“Ejercicio Plástico” (“Plastic Exercise”) is the mural by Mexican artist David Alfaro Siqueiros, alongside Argentine artists Lino Enea Spilimbergo, Antonio Berni and Juan Carlos Castagnino , and the Uruguayan Enrique Lazaro designer .

This work was done in 1933, in the basement of the farm Los Granados , located in Don Torcuato, Buenos Aires Province, belonging to Natalio Botana, owner and founder of the journal Critique.

It is considered a masterpiece of Latin America, and is the only work of Siqueiros lacking political and social content. The artist seeks to print a transformative to the mural, which is why they used new technologies (replacing sketches by the use of photography, the use of the cinema projecting images on the wall, the use of the “airbrushed” replacing the brush) and industrial paints for the mural.

In 1990 begins the recovery process, when a company buys the farm with the idea of ​​bringing the work in traveling exhibition around the world. This company made the removal of the mural, advised by the Mexican expert Manuel Serrano. For 16 years he was kept in containers, while a legal dispute between companies was resolved. The rescue of Exercise Plastic manifested concretely in 2003 when it was declared a National Historic Landmark Art by decree.  In 2008  was transferred to a restoration workshop located in Plaza Colón. In 2009 Congress declared the mural “public utility and subject to expropriation. They decided to move this master piece to the Bicentennial Museum , designed by B4FS , Bares , Becker, Ferrari architects study.

Our project, is a glass box containing this artistic piece with guards and international conservation standards . We developed a glass skin, with the support of the company Technal in France, which allowed us to develop a polished glass prism with full headers, structure and enclosure, developed in glass. It was necessary to develop a constructive logic as to manage the transfer of the mural, its descent and assembly in this great space.

As can be seen in the section we develop: a spatial system foundations, ventilation, air conditioning, humidification and lighting that will not damage the wall while allowing enjoyed this great mural  in all its splendor.
