Trasconejada Travesía Imaginaria



Junto a Raquel Fluixá, Valeria Señorans, Héctor Ramazzi



At Killka Art Gallery, a new chapter begins. Our exhibition space expands and integrates into the architectural surroundings. Artwork floods in the facilities, following us at every step we take. Time is also a constant throughout the exhibition space, marking and guiding the cycles of both nature and culture. Killka’s design is intended to allow us to detach from our daily routine and connect with the world of art and wine. It invites us to travel through space and time. Its architecture offers a way of reinterpreting the ancient construction techniques of the Cuyo region in Argentina. The outcome is a contemporary building that makes a strong Andean impression. The perfect merge between the past and the present.

The name chosen to the building that welcomes the visitor was Killka, which allures guests to come in and taste the wine world. The word “Killka” means portal or gateway and has its origins in the Quechua language. “Portales: trasconejada. Travesía Imaginaria” (Portals: Pursuit and Getting lost. Imaginary Journey), our new expository proposal, is articulated around the concepts of  “portal” and “time”. The leading artist Marcela Furlani, along with Raquel Fluixá, Valeria Señorans and Héctor Ramazzi, reinterpret these concepts and link them into our space. They invite us to tour Killka Art Gallery in a playful and experimental way, offering our guests a renewed experience. 

Who hasn’t imagined impossible realities, at least once? Realities where things we believe would never happen, do happen. A portal connects us with distant places, in a different space and time. It can transport us to various places within the same universe, or even to parallel worlds. In Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland," the author offers an encounter with this possibility. An opportunity to explore other distant or nearby worlds, within ourselves, as dimensions intersect and realities are multiplied.
