La Puna

30.09.2019 to 04.10.2019

Silvi Glattauer is a photo-media artist from Melbourne, Australia. She was born in Argentina and migrated to Australia at the age of 7 years old. After many years of traveling between the two countries, Silvi’s art work continues to speak of her dual culture experiences.

For the residency at 'ACE, Silvi will be developing ideas for artist books. The themes are exploring a personal narrative of identity that pendulates between Australia and Argentina. Silvi’s book pages began in Australia and will be further developed during the ACE residency with images from the La Puna region of North West Argentina. The artists books will be finished back in Australia. 

About "La Puna Argentina"

Eternal and elusive, silent yet present, a landscape that offers extensive spaces, provides an opportunity to disconnect from the tangible and obvious visual elements one would associate with traditional landscape photography. The conceptual mind can drift and float in these never-ending, shadows less planes and spaces, revealing clarity towards a personal identity.
