This is an artwork that has been around for a while. The Brockley Key goes back to 2006. Then came the stickers that wound up almost anywhere, and most recently two new Keys appeared in San Isidro, Patricio’s hometown. The location was an abandoned port on the River Plate, where boats would dock to unload sand into these buildings, known as areneras. Recently, the control of the port changed hands, meaning that it is undergoing renovation; these installments come to unleash new and surprising potential.
One of the two Keys is our first proper anamorphic painting. It was lovely to paint above the bus terminal, with all the drivers looking up is disbelief. We have now heard the news that the building will become a Museum of Argentine Contemporary Art, which is amazing. The question is whether they will keep the artwork or not!
