Boyness is a visual investigation that starts from the question: Is it possible to develop —through the tools of contemporary art— a genealogy of the representation of the boy before time? Dreaming of being bandits or heroes, cowboys or gauchos, zombies or robots, executioners or adults; boys define for themselves that state or condition of being a boy. Starting from classic literary pieces, by authors like Mark Twain or our Ricardo Güiraldes, I finally seek to establish my own mythology.

The Condition of a Boy
Exhibition text x Ezequiel Lavena

In three children who bathe naked in the river of a town in the United States or in an adolescent who dreams of the hero's path at nap time or in a boy who begins in the doctrine of a gaucho from the Argentine pampas underlying a condition that suggests will, insolence, unconcern: the condition of a boy. In it, Tranchida finds objects to explore: on the one hand, the space of free association, in which Luke Skywalker and Tom Sawyer coexist, both playing at being men; on the other, the definition of a boy archetype, which includes playfulness, the exclusivity of a dimension without women, and, consequently, eroticism: Cáceres, the apprentice from whom Segundo Sombra translates his admiration into a homoerotic drive . For his reconstruction of the archeology of a boy, Tranchida uses the photography of ambiguous adolescents, the deliberately imperfect drawing of boys alone, the creation of fictional video games, the projection of photographs, which define and shape the habitat of the adolescent and in he music, leisure, disorderly childhood, toys, some books. In this exploration, sometimes sacrilegious –the emulation of the Via Crucis– Tranchida does not exhaust the possibilities of the condition that it investigates, rather it seems to suggest others at the same time that it inaugurates a domain that proposes a recurrent return.
