Horizons
"Artists in Dialogue"

06.07.22 06.07.22

On Wednesday, July 6th, we inaugurated the works of our artists in residence for the June period with a special ´aceNITE, which also included the presence and participation of local artists.

Lindsey Clark-Ryan (USA) presented her installation Fold the World in Half at Your Eyes, in which the artist uses the horizon as a starting point to explore the relationship between printmaking, paper, and how we conceive space. Incorporating local elements obtained throughout her residence, the printed forms are defined by the edges of tall canopies that display a phenomenon called canopy shyness, those spaces where the uppermost branches dare not touch. Rachel Singel (USA) opened to the local public the result of four intense weeks of production in the workshop, culminating in the series Plantas porteñas, a series of photolithographs printed on paper handmade by the artist herself. These papers were made from fibers of North American invasive plants, on which the artist stamped motifs of local plants such as jacaranda, maple and bridal bow, creating a vegetal superposition that puts the environment of the residence in dialogue with the environment in which the artist lives. Carter Voras (USA) opened his studio in La Torre to share with the local public the result of his Exploration Residency, in which he worked painting with acrylic on canvas and incorporated figurative elements into his visual palette that counterbalance the usual abstraction of his paintings.

In addition, we invite Pablo Delfini to be part of this ´aceNITE, who presented his book Less Toxic Engraving (the blog book) in our studio, in which the artist exposes the relationship between artistic engraving techniques and a work posture less polluting and more sustainable in harmony with health and the environment, it develops less toxic lithography techniques (waterless lithography on aluminum and on tetrapak, lemon rubber lithography, lithography on marble, lithography on polyester); less toxic Chalcography with salt mordants (etching, aquatint, sugar etching, soft varnish, acrylic wash and electrolytic etching) and with direct incision (engraving, drypoint and mezzotint). As part of this presentation, we also invited a selection of local artists who work or worked with Pablo Delfini in his engraving workshop, who exhibited prints made using different non-toxic techniques.

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.
