The last photo from beautiful BA. Time to board the Zaandam "We, the Outsiders"(Nosotros Afuera) was created by self-taught Argentinean artist Federico Manuel Peralta Ramos in 1965, is a gigantic egg sculpture shown only once before it was destroyed by the artist. This giant egg is a reproduction of the one Federico Peralta Ramos won the Di Tella Prize for in 1965. Peralta Ramos was an eccentric character, an Argentinean artist of his own avant-garde in the 60's. Peralta called it " We Outside " a giant egg that inverts our understanding of what is inside and what is outside of consciousness and creation that marks more a beginning than an end. The sculpture sits In the front of Art-Deco Kavannah Building, in Recoleta Barrio in the square where Florida, San Martín and Ricardo Rojas streets meet across from Plaza General San Martin (in the background). ABOUT THE SCULPTURE: Very little documentation remains of the piece Peralta Ramos created as his contribution to the final Instituto Torcuato di Tella show in 1965. The few black-and-white photographs that exist show the large egg alone with its maker on a thin plinth on the gallery floor. There are some dark areas in the plaster; the piece was not entirely dry at the time of the show. Surviving friends who saw the piece recall that the work was made in such a hurry that it broke immediately after the jury declared it the winner of that year’s Di Tella Art Prize. A relative of Peralta Ramos similarly remembers that the artist miscalculated the tension between the metal structure and the plaster skin, and the piece imploded immediately after the award ceremony. Yet there is also a picture that shows Peralta Ramos destroying the piece himself. Either way, the work was too large to be moved as it was made inside the gallery space, and was always fated for destruction.
