ABOUT feticheAFICHE (by Eric Javier Markowski)
“Afiche” (poster) is taken from the lyrics of the tango Afiches from Homero Exposito and Atilio Stampone (1956), and is linked to the recurrent use of poster as support on which draw or paint. The project combines drawings of observation on word searches sheets and its registration with photography. The poster appears in this case as format and final reference of the images produced. The route, search and movement are put in tension through the concept of fetish understood both its materialistic conception and its magical and ritual sense.
The project has an approximate development of four years, covering the production of drawings, photographs, posters, exhibitions in galleries, universities, spaces of autonomous art and residences, three Days of Intervention of the project’s posters and several actions in the public space.
The drawings on word searches accidentally emerged in the Residency of Contemporary Art organised by Curatoria Forense (Jorge Sepulveda T./Curador independent-Ilze Petroni / Researcher of Contemporary Art) Social Summer Camp III: Animal Farm in Villa Alegre, Chile (2012). There came the first drawings and photographs of the places I traveled through, as I sticked or took posters. These drawings and photographs became since then the main body of the Project.
Posters printed so far have been funded under the Economic Scholarship Research Support, Exchanges and Residences:
– Fellowship SAE de Iniciación en la Investigación 2013 (FBA-UNLP)
– Exchange Scholarship Teaching Program Scale (UFMG) – Economic support the CED in Residence Galvez Inc. and organised by the Pan Gallery
