“Through art as a documentary language we want to bring universal concerns, we want the viewer to get involved in front of our work, not just looking but rather taking part of it…”


Hello Bardo and welcome to our Resort.
What did you choose to present?

POLAR – Chronicle of the thaw. Through this installation we seek to document in an artistic way how the climate change is affecting directly the arctic poles and the human being. Approximately 1000 pyramids symbolise topographically this 75% glacier reduction in 30 years. The purpose: Awakening the conscience
in people.

Who are you and where are you from?

We are BARDO, Brenda Imboden and Luis Viale.
We grew up in a town in Buenos Aires nearly 2 hours from Downtown (Capital Federal). As children we were surrounded by trees and small houses. We traveled hours by train to work and to finish our studies at the University. We love biking, sea, animals and people. We believe in a world without borders, energy and love. We are passionate about the challenges, adventures and changes. We are in constant search of our being, of the genuine and true. Through art as a documentary language we want to bring universal concerns, we want the viewer to get involved in front of our work, not just looking but rather taking part of it. We want to inspire the awakening of consciences and boost the pure state of living in the present, the now. From our place as artists, we fight for a better, more equitable and more united world. We specialize in Art installations, Mapping, Vj set and Street art.

What inspires you?

Discovering the universe of the human being.

Our way of life. Deciding to live in different countries with different cultures make us flexible and reflective. Discovering people and new ways of living is what it make us move. Getting away from the comfortable area.
