Composition of a Gray Color
Matías Piñeiro

26.10.16 16.11.16

At the ´aceNITE of October 26th, Matías Piñero, artist selected through the SEMILLERO 2016 open call, presented Composition of a Gray Color.


These series of works start from taking records of movement and moving in the places I visit, the series is composed of records in Buenos Aires, San Andres de Giles, Salta and Jujuy.

I take the relation of contemporary man with nature as a starting point of my work, I’m interested in the way this altermodern society is linked or communicates with it, how it creates ties or destroys it. I always worked with trees, being one of the elements of nature that is more linked to life, death and change. My earliest works were driven by the intention to return to nature its original state before the man used it for selfish purposes, using the waste of splints or furniture on the street.

Taking into account that nature is constantly in motion (born, growing, reproducing and dying for something to be born again), in 2015 I started producing works related to this concept, investigating from the idea that one must be moved from place, out of desire or need in search of something it does not have, in order to try to feel more complete (food, energy, affection, communication, etc.).

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.
