María Fourcade is a young artist, finishing a stage of her artistic education and with great dedication to art. In 'ace, she made a micro-residence where, through photolithography, she explored the image and legend of the Telesita.

STATEMENT OF THE ARTIST


I say the Telesita.
One chacarera more among so many others dedicated and danced in honor of the innocent saint consumed by the flames in the thick of the mountain santiagueño (regarding the area of Santiago del Estero, Argentina).
In an almost inevitable interrelation, the folklore, the legends and the dance, look for those stories hidden in the most recondite places of the country. As many other times I liked to do it, I rescued this story from among many others.
At first, I was attracted to its protagonists. The dancing fire, the movements of a tireless dancer and her ashes found among the trees. At times, I suspected that the process would be like fire. Dynamic, intense and almost possessing a life of its own.
It is a small challenge to continue with a job that began almost four years ago. More than anything because of the different changes that occurred over time. Although the process continues around the Argentine legend of La Telesita, the way of working it, techniques and printing media are adapting to my own formation. The vision of the same process, both my own and that of my guides, tutors and colleagues, varies in the same way that it nourishes each work and each new idea.
