STORIES / Gallery 1: Bar Cacique, 2005

Watch VideoThe Bar Cacique, to my eyes, corresponds directly to the concept of the cabinet of wonders. The owner, Omar Lescano, has always been interested in collecting random stuff such as snakes, taxidermy, animal parts, old currency, cigarette boxes, stones, guns, knives, and old ra- dios. As word spread, his customers brought him person- al donations that began to accumulate in the bar. When asked if he would be tempted to take something home, Omar responds, “These things don’t belong to me.”Villa Cacique, Buenos Aires Province
