The Horse Problem: A sculptural representation of Argentina’s icons

The Argentinian Pavilion of this year’s Venice Biennale played host to a giant white horse suspended in mid-air.

The large sculptural piece by artist Claudia Fontes, called “The Horse Problem,” features 400 white rocks surrounding the figure, was inspired by 19th-century icons that Argentina was falsely based on. “The Horse Problem offers in a flash, a way to reinterpret history in a different way, a chance to construct an alternative narrative for our future as species,” writes Gabriel Giorgi in an essay about the work.

Check out some images of the sculpture below and learn more on the artist’s website.
