[Blank Space] 1

09.10.17 03.11.17

During October 2017, Fundación´ace‘s Políglota Room contains the void to foster reflection, the exchange of ideas and discussion amongst local artists.

Some testimonies about the experience:


LUCÍA BUCHAR



The residency was essential to have a daily place destined to delve and explore into my artistic work. ´ace was the place where I could submerge myself in the challenge that I had set for myself, an island of concentration, deepening and takeoff in the middle of the day. Together with the feeling I got inside this special oasis, it was very nurturing for me to be able to work in collaboration. To work together with other artists, to exchange opinions, materials, to bring something into someone else’s work and to let someone else bring something into mine, to witness the development of another artist’s work, see it grow, the come-and-goes. To create bonds and combine the pieces of our works so that together they form new dialogues and possibly futures projects, the exchange of knowledge, of information about possible scholarships and residencies, experiences… it al got amplified by working in a group.

In my first attempt to turn the small drawings into bigger ones the result wasn’t what I expected, until I searched and found a way that I felt more resolved. It was a whole month of huge dedication to arrive at a result that I’m very happy with and that triggered two large projects for the near future.




EZEQUIEL BARAKAT



My experience as part of the [Blank Space] residency, in its initial edition, has been very satisfactory. Amongst the motivations that took me to this space was to interact with other artists in a project of daily coexistence, where we could discuss our visions, processes and ideas; on the other hand, to come closer to a place where I could nurture myself from appreciations and a follow-up of my projects by a qualified team, which was all very fruitful. Each of the five participants, I dare to think, has taken each other’s views as part of our experiences, and that, in the visual arts field, is always enriching for the artist and the artwork. I believe that, after four weeks, [Blank Space] started to fill with ideas, projects, new energies for creation and, above all, a bond between the organizers and participants that aspires to last. It’s worth mentioning, in the scope of the final open studio, the exhibition of results that –even though they were not definitive, as this was not a production residency– accounted for advances and progresses in our processes.

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.
