Art Critic
From "Finding time to express emotions". Published in newspaper "The Buenos Aires Herald", Nov. 20, 1988

(...) Time. A topic which has always fascinated Argentines, from the lack of it to the philosophical principies ruling this most evasive of metaphysical considerations. In an original exhibit currently taking place in the Centro Cultural Ciudad de Buenos Aires, located in Recoleta, artist Carlos Kravetz and philosopher Annabel Lee Teles tackle the subject from two different standpoints, yet forming a united and quite successfully cohesive front. This "conversation bet-ween art and philosophy" is appropriately called Tiempos Instalados, an obvious reference to the subject matter and the objects exhibited. These installations include the use of laser rays, kites, combined projections, objects-sculptures, perfumes, dramatic lighting, music and paintings. (...) Kravetz takes us back to his search for things past (no relation to Proust) and the introduction into 'the life-death 'process' through "rebirths rather than recycling". This artist doesn't return to the previous stage of objects, he brings them back to life in a different form (now we arrive at Proust), in a new environment, through : different circumstances. Individual myths are mixed with the painter's own experiences, aiming at surrounding the viewer with objects, sensations and - "vibes" (however hateful this hippiesh word is) which are sure to move the unexpecting passer-by in some way, from some angle. Images, photos, smells, shadows, objects, sounds and writien feelings and ideas form a maize from which no one can escape unmoved. That is, if you want to be moved.
