Patricia Villalobos Echeverría
Videoconference

18.10.13

On October 18th at 3 pm. Patricia Villalobos Echeverría joined us via video-talk as part of the activities programmed for the International Project 150 [cycles]. The video-talk focused on expanded sculpture and printmaking practices. The artist was born in Tennessee to Salvadoran parents and grew up in Managua, Nicaragua. She has a hybrid practice of prints, photos, videos and installations that explore how reproducible forms of representation can alter our notions of singularity and the various states of flux that we enter: some physical, others virtual.

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is a hybrid practice of prints, photos, videos, multiples and installations. I am primarily interested in how reproducible forms of representation can alter our notions of singularity. My installations play with the tension between the three-dimensional physicality of sculpture and architecture as well as the ephemeral nature of video and sound. I am interested in the nature of power and relationships of dependence; I examine these through the use of sculptural forms as contaminants within architectural spaces as well as videos dealing with the body in a transnational political context.   In this way my work questions our sense of stability; I am intrigued by how time can seem to be suspended as we enter and exit spaces in a state of flux – some geographical, others virtual, pointing to a concurrent state of dissolution (dissociation) and hyper-embodiment.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
