16 Apr Giannini, Buenos Aires answer to Steve Keene

Near the neighborhood of Palermo in Buenos Aires, there is a large indoor flea market. There are a few stalls with old lights and knick knacks, but the majority of the market is devoted to re-purposed furniture. However, in a small stall in the middle of the building we wandered into a shop run by an artist named Giannini. His...
