Amalia Pica deals with systems of language and communication, social habitats and social interaction. The work “Rearranging the conference table” consists of 14 colorful tables which are grouped and rearranged daily, challenging the fixed hierarchy ingrained in corporate furniture. Pica investigates the office as a social structure. Offices are often characterized by typical dull furnishings. Conference tables are emblematic of this, but in contrast to conventional office furniture, Pica designed them in her typical formal language of geometric shapes and bold colored surfaces. This is intended to counteract the tedious everyday processes with something joyful. This visual principle is also present in the wall works, made of Formica on plywood, where she brings the tabletop to the wall in studies that explore the possibilities of the choreography of the tables. The geometric figures further demonstrate Pica's affair with Concrete Art. In contrast to their European counterpart, the movement in South America, including in the artist's home country, Argentina, was explicitly political. The works there were always inherent of the desire for new social visions.
