Presentation

This monographic exhibition invites us to discover recent works by 34-year-old Argentinian painter Sergio Moscona and offers a clear perspective of the artist’s work through an important selection of acrylic paintings, collages, acrylic and ink drawings, presented for the first time in Paris.

This solo show puts into perspective Sergio Moscona’s questioning of our reality as human beings. How do we react in times of difficulty, facing the others, confronted with the vicissitudes of existence? What questions do we ask ourselves? How does the artist materialize his feelings about our imperfect condition of human beings? Illustrating his horrors, his pitfalls, but also his philosophical reflections, Sergio Moscona has a complex view of existence and raises numerous questions about these issues.

The exhibition "Paquito Laguna" has been presented between December 2013 and February 2014 at the Museo de artes plasticas Eduardo Sivori in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Paquito Laguna is a hybrid character created by Sergio Moscona and inspired by two entities: Juanito Laguna, a character created by the painter Antonio Berni depicting the daily life of the children in the slums that have spread with the arrival of workers attracted by the numerous factory jobs available in the 1960s in the outskirts of the big cities. The other source of inspiration is "Paco", who inspired the name "Paquito Laguna", the title of the show.

"Paco" is a cheap drug derived from cocaine. Thus, the character created by Sergio Moscona is both a "Juanito" and a "Paquito", a vulnerable child, victim of society’s miseries and problems, deeply connected to the environment in which he lives.
