ARTIST STATEMENT

Printmaking on non-conventional supports for the reflection on identity and the effects between the new link: human and artificial intelligence.

I called the portraits that make up this proposal “Metahumans”, they are taken from the series entitled Infinite Portraits, 2023. With the intention of removing them from their digital nature, I operated on them with the technique of photolithography, altering qualities and colours, to give them a new dimension of materialisation that rethinks the digital process from the analogue.

These pieces emerge from the need to decompose and alter the perception of the “real” for a new construction, inspired by the speed of thought, and the idea of new technologies generating infinite possibilities, which today makes us navigate in the vortex of an era marked by the miraculous command of a prompt, making us rethink the now intricate link between the human and the non-human. Acknowledging at the same time the collective fear of becoming obsolete, of disappearing in the face of a new existence ever closer to dystopian cinematic worlds, which continually challenge us in their overwhelming evolution, seemingly imitating and surpassing us in our light and shadow as humans.

The mirror as a material is presented as an essential component for the experience of this proposal, being the starting point to investigate our reflected image, serving as a link and interrelation with the environment. A moment that invites us to ask ourselves questions such as: does visual perception determine our identity? Does the mirror simply reflect in an inverted way who we are, or could it be an entrance to another dimension? Where lies the line that separates reality from fiction? And while we try to answer these questions, these “Metahuman” beings emerge in the space between, like mirages, in the interstices of our presence, there, possessing the power to go beyond time, manifesting themselves in the midst of our existence, hidden among the lights and shapes they merge with our own image, they appear ethereal, with a weightless nature that from wefts intersect with our bodies, minds and distorted perceptions, creating a new image of ourselves, inviting us to the fabulation of a new interspecies that promises to turn us into hybrid, multitemporal and multiversal beings.

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.
