Opened on October 7th, 2017, and running for one whole year (yes, until October 2018), Barrilete Children’s Museum, of the city of Córdoba (Recta Martinoli 7867, Barrio Argüello), organized a gigantic interactive exhibition with installation-art representing my books.
It is a spectacular and completely playful experience, in which children and adults may literally “go inside” a city of paper, visit the Sinalefo Exultante Museum from Puatucha Rentes, “become” the colors of Can you see?, go beyond the obvious at the Obvious area, build and launch paper planes from the platform of Departing Plane, Arriving Plane, walk over Möbius strips, and many more wonders. Each area has a workshop where one can free one’s inspiration and create one’s own works of art. The exhibition is available to be a travelling exhibition.
City Areas, from the books “La ciudad [The City]” y “Todo lo que es Juan [All That Juan Is]” (AZ Editora).
Area of Wishes, based on the book “Todo el dinero del mundo [All the Money in the World]” (Sudamericana - Penguin Random House).
Biographical Area, with me myself telling my story in an amusing video.
Area of Paper Planes, based on the book “Avión que va, avión que llega [Departing Plane, Arriving Plane]” (Ediciones del Eclipse).
Area of the Infinite, based on the book “Detrás de él estaba su nariz [He was Followed by his Nose]” (Ediciones del Eclipse).
Area of the Sinalefo Exultante Museum, based on the book “Puatucha Rentes, la leyenda olvidada [Puatucha Rentes. The Forgotten Legend]” (Calibroscopio Ediciones).
