Fernando Hierro is a visual artist, cultural manager and student of the Bachelor in Arts and since 2016 he is a member of the Free Chair of Art, History and Society, Faculty of Philosophy and Letters, University Of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Fernando was one of the selected artists through the Semillero 2017 call. He presented the installation Exercises (on vinyl gloves) during the November 2017 ´aceNITE, together with Santiago Ocampo’s project Traces, artists in residency Caleb Jamel Brown (USA) and Elinor Peiretti (Argentina) and the [Blank Space] closing group show.

EXERCISES (ON VINYL GLOVES) (by Fernando Hierro)

The possibility of building a work on the reflection of a practice in the becoming of traveling, is the axis of the present installation. Exercises groups and visualizes six years of production in trials, errors and intermittences characteristic of changing residence between Scandinavia, Central America and Buenos Aires. Through the synopsis as a resource, I try to link themes such as migration, notions of identity and the circulation of discursive constructions, which make visible tensions between local and global dynamics.

It is worth mentioning that the present proposal is part of my research and visual exploration platform entitled CORTES / CUTS, opportunely exhibited in two facilities in Sweden (2011) and in El Salvador (2014).
The exhibited work is part of a larger body of work that includes sketches, ephemeral drawings, photographic records, objects, texts and geometric interventions on the wall, which intersect the phenomenal, the epistemological and the topological. Articulated in brief textual reviews under the following headings: i) Search exercise, ii) Exercise on vinyl gloves, iii) Exercise on a snowball and iv) Arm and disarm exercises.

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.
