A macrocosm


On Wednesday, July 3, we inaugurated the projects of the Production Residences for the months of June-July 2019 by Daniela Rivera (Chile-USA) and Aubrey Vollrath (USA), together with an open studio by Rashid Lane (USA), who shared the results of his exploration residency. The works of Daniela and Aubrey coexisted in dialogue with two guest projects: an installation by Constanza Abete (Argentina) and the Micro-Macrocosmos2018 portfolio organized by the International Graphics Exchange Program (IPEP) of India, with the participation of Argentine artist Floki Gauvry.

Daniela Rivera's project, "In Search of the Andes" was a work in collaboration with Argentine artists Guillermo Mena and Javier Bustos.
In Search for the Andes is born from the need to go deep in the experience of immigration beside the politics, economics, and social aspects. It is a a project that explores the experience of instability brought by the lack of referent to recall identity
For this work, Daniela, Guillermo and Javier worked together from the attempt to retrieve memories, to create inside the exhibition space a new place that resists consumption and points to the emptying of memory. A job from the exhausting experience of relocation and displacement.

Aubrey Vollrath’s project sought to explore the eccentricities of the telos of Buenos Aires and its peculiar characteristics: "What makes a good love motel? I am interested in exploring the aesthetics of rooms specifically designed for sex, and the curatorship that they do of the fantasies of an unknown other. "

Rashid Lane opened its research on the local Afro-descendant diaspora to the public of Fundación´ace, which in the near future will trigger a series of triptych paintings that will characterize the narrative of the different cultural origins of people of African descent in Argentina.
The MICRO-MACROCOSMOS exhibition (sponsored in Buenos Aires by Fundación´ace) is a series of international graphic works by artists from India, Argentina, Mexico, USA, Poland, Finland, Russia, Turkey, Pakistan, Taiwan, Australia, Portugal and Nepal, made in 2018 and gathered through IPEP.

Constanza Abete, selected artist within the Semillero 2019 open call, presented "White Noise II" , an installation that took place in the transversal space of our house. The entire walls of the space were covered by masks in gauze and plaster combined with the reproduction of a recording of white noise.
