Crossings
Artists in dialogue

04.06.08

Crossings emphasized interrelationships between the installations of two American artists of different generations and with different concerns. However, the works they did during their residency with us, express some common ground where the dimensions of time, space, knowledge and geographical movements are implicit.

Suzan Shutan claims that being 5 foot tall and possibly having a Napoleon complex, it is not easy for her to create such large works. The artist comes from the field of sculpture and is passionate about creating spaces (often deceiving the eye) and inmersive site-specific installations.  It always starts with materials found in “the corner store”, in this case straws, wool, light wood sticks or packages of metallic and opaque colored paper. Her leafy imagination awakens our senses while she describes with humor and self-criticism her ignorance of an Argentina that was imagined, before residence, in her home in Connecticut. Thus, she represents the Iguazú Falls only with a wavy line that reflects multiple colors on the wall, whose movement and sounds are similar to water, or the Boca and River soccer clubs with hexagons of wooden sticks that resemble soccer balls. Her sculptural works are understood at the same time as drawing, since it is the line that creates the volume.

On the other hand, Michelle Murillo is an artist who comes from printmaking but who constantly seeks to expand the vocabulary of print and the multiple in an interdisciplinary context. Her work can be broadly understood as a practice of archiving: the lost, found, re-membered and collected. Her installation is exquisite and elegant. The transparency of the glass with opaque silkscreen prints on top and its reflections on the space is poetic and at the same time ungraspable, like the memories it evokes.

“I literally attempt to draw one into an illusion using an array of unrestricted and extraordinary visual effects and materials. My line is string, or flagging tape, or masking tape or wire with elements off the ends such as cubes or poms”.

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.
