Material States: A Conversation with Marcela Cabutti
by Maria Carolina Baulo
Octas, 2012. Argentine artist Marcela Cabutti creates simple, elegant, and subtle works of fantasy and magical transformation based on a strong connection between forms and materials, particularly blown glass and fired clay. While some viewers may think of a Surrealist legacy, her sculptures and installations also draw on the literary tradition of Jorge Luis Borges, Julio Cortázar, Silvina Ocampo, and Ernesto Sábato, using shifting points of view to create a metaphysical sense of time and place in visual form. Cabutti began working in glass in 1997 while living at the Delfina Studio Trust in London; later, she worked with master craftsman Pino Signoretto in Murano.
