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

The locations where actions related to the project took place are so far: Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico.

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.
