Flowering Bodies is the first site-specific graphic installation by Elizabeth Castaldo that was exhibited at the second edition of ‘ace Nite this year. During her residency at ‘ace, she was inspired by the plant life of Buenos Aires and created drawings of flowers and leaves, representing many local plant forms including hibiscus flowers, ceibo or coral tree, crown of thorns, jacaranda, purple heart, and monstera. These drawings were used to make photolithography plates from which many multiples were hand-printed, overlapping patterns and more detailed drawings.

These prints were cut to create a figure, as well as the shapes of flowers and monstera leaves, which were then used as modular elements to create a three-dimensional installation in the mezzanine space. Her work addresses the idea of the divine in the feminine as a creative power and force of connection, represented by the suspended figure, surrounded by a garden of floral forms and patterns printed in different layers on the paper.

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.
