Object Description: Within two weeks of hearing he had contracted HIV, Schiliro began a short but extremely important career as an artist. At once gaudy and kitschy, but also disturbing and melancholy, his lamp sculptures have come to symbolize the baroque sensibility of the “Arte Light” movement in Buenos Aires during the 1990s. The contrast between the flamboyant forms and the dim light inside is a poignant and moving commentary on morality, sexuality, joy, and sadness.
