Multidisciplinary artist Miguel Rothschild works across a wide variety of mediums from modified photography to glass sculpture and textiles. In several recent works the Argentine artist has captured the slow roll of ocean waves in suspended fabric installations titled Elegy and De Profundis. Both artworks seem to play with the viewer’s perception, appearing both as waves or perhaps a slice of the sky. Even the filament that holds the artwork airborne seems to glisten like rays of sun or rain.
Miguel Rothschild was born in 1963 in Buenos Aires. From 1982-1987 he studied at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires. Between 1991 and 1994 he went to study at the Hochschule der Künste, Berlin. Miguel Rothschild lives and works Buenos Aires, RA and Berlin, Germany.
He studied at the Escuela Nacional des Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires and the Universität der Künste, Berlin and graduated from the masterclass of Rebecca Horn. His works were part of numerous exhibitions in Argentia at Malba – Fundación Costantini, Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires and the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires. His works were recently shown in Germany at the Berlinische Galerie, the Jewish Museum Berlin and the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum Ludwigshafen. Miguel Rothschild is inspired by the idea of calling art into question. Out of this inner debate, reversible figures have emerged which all take photography as their starting point.
