About

Beatriz Gerenstein bronze sculpture "Awaiting” shows a pregnant mother sitting in a simple piece of wood. Her child is playing with her, with the small arm over the mother lap in a spontaneous caress. The two are wearing white clothes, a symbol of purity and innocence. Awaiting is a truly contemporary, feminist sculpture with deep social content. Beatriz Gerenstein confronts us with a story that can not be more clean and simple. The mastery of the artist stands out in the composition of this work in which each element is unpretentious and pure. The world changes, cultures, and traditions are different and evolve, but the love between mother and baby is unconditional and eternal. Awaiting is one of the sweetest sculptures ever made. The mother-child love is a mystery that touches every fiber of our heart. Beatriz Gerenstein is a contemporary artist whose body of work explores the daily pleasures, anxieties, and mysteries of the human being. In such a world we live in, full of wars and self-regard, violence, grid and political cynicism, Beatriz Gerenstein chose to talk about the human condition, love, friendship, anguish, pleasure, joy, pain, and spirituality, the desire to exist and to love. Gerenstein exhibits widely throughout the world. She showed her work in Venice, Italy during the 56th and 57th Venice Biennale (2015 and 2017). Also participated in the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale (2016) as well as in the IX Florence and 12th Havana Biennials (La Bienal de la Habana, 2015). Prominent art fairs have hosted shows of Beatriz Gerenstein sculptures, like Shanghai Contemporary, Shanghai Art Fair, Art Revolution Taipei, Art Shanghai, Top Galleries in Seoul, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Art Exhibition in Hong Kong. Beatriz Gerenstein was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She lives and works in Miami, USA.
