Osvaldo Lamborghini (Buenos Aires, 1940; Barcelona, 1985) is one of the most unique and fascinating writers of contemporary Argentinean literature. During his lifetime he only published three books – El fiord (1969), Sebregondi retrocede (1973) and Poemas (1980) – and, posthumously, Novelas y cuentos (1988), Tadeys (incomplete, 1994) and Teatro proletario de cámara (Proletarian Chamber Theatre, 2008). However, he has already achieved the status of cult author, joining the equally reductive category of myth.

The biography of Lamborghini certainly fulfils almost all the rigours of the accursed poets, while his career refutes any attempt at classification. However, there is an aspect to Lamborghini’s output – consisting of his work with photographic collages, books with intervened images and texts, as well as posters and drawings – that awaits further investigation. This catalogue presents a selection of this material, drawn from his personal archive and never previously shown in public.

I like to work with what is often called "cultural heritage", but the materials that I use are banal and clichéd, like sugar blocks, doors, couscous, rugs, official documents.
