“The tactile movement begins with an approach that begins in the void and ends when it reaches the void again. Whether I touch the object meticulously or find it by chance and thoughtlessly, in both cases I approach it from the void (…) Whether the object is so small that it fits in my hand or that I have to explore it by following its surfaces and its edges, I can only have an impression of it insofar as I separate it from the adjacent void ” E. STRAUSS

The Argentine artist David López Mastrángelo was invited to carry out an installation in the Transversal Space within the SUB30 Program that seeks to give opportunities to emerging artists. His work was specially selected since we found in it the possibility of generating a dialogue with the work of artists in residence Julie Krone and Jessica Simmons in which brand and chance play important roles.


I always drew things that I didn’t think about how they would end. Most of the drawings I make have a process from the repetitive and the multiple. Thus, textures emerged that I did not imagine but that I remembered in some dream or fantasy of imperfection. In that search I found objects that are related or not to the drawings, but in both cases; There is something that these things attract my attention for some reason: a shine that persists, the porous edges, the silhouettes without reason, the unpredictability of six kilos of glass, etc. So I put together this sample and I thought about my drawings, and one or more colors: the translucent, the texture of the sun, and the difference between a bright blue and its shadow.

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.
