Nicola Costantino’s, Rapsodia inconclusa [Unfinished Rhapsody], is an installation currently showing at the Argentina Pavilion of the Venice Biennale, which uses digital video to speak of the nation’s continuing attempts to make sense of a turbulent 20th-C political history. At the heart of this work is the controversial and emotionally-charged character of Eva Peron, the First Lady of Argentina from 1946 until her death in 1952.
