Beatriz Gerenstein
The Gift. Stainless steel sculpture by Beatriz Gerenstein

2015

About

Everyone has a wish. Beatriz Gerenstein made “The Gift” a stainless steel sculpture looking like a paper-wrapped box tied with rope. She challenges us to place our wish on it. The very reflective but uneven surface of the stainless steel creates undefined images of the viewers and colors and the surroundings. The organic manila rope makes “The Gift” to feel real, warm and approachable. What would you wish to find in the gift? 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.
