Mondongo is arguably the most prolific and ebullient of the new wave of the Latin America's contemporary artists, and have recently collaborated with Rei Kawakubo, founder of Commes Des Garçons. The collective, formed in 1999, comprises three artists – Agustina Picasso, Manuel Mendanha and Juliana Lafitte. they fuse thread, beads, tar, wax and plasticine in a painstakingly slow process that produces intricate mixed-media paintings. The works tackle archetypes such as love, death, creation and sex with a style that hovers between playful and perverse.
