IN ICARO´S SKIN (by Anna Nicholson)

Throughout the history of art, artists have used mythological references for the construction of their imaginary. The myth of Icarus is particularly symbolic in my current circumstances. I live in Puerto Rico, a Caribbean island that is close to chaos, mired in an economic crisis that can be compared to what the Greek people suffer today. Both Icarus as Puerto Rico are fragile facing the systems that handle global economies.

I think the artifacts created to impose flight symbolically desperate repair exhaust as a disguise. Newspaper clippings, different types of fabrics, textures a selection of paperas and whispered phrases, a collage of seeds trapped in a body of changing hierarchies. Using means of reproduction and printing techniques , multiple is the form chosen for the creation of a structure that explores the image.

Anointed by the excitement of reading the Ovid; Icarus, and relating to our highest good is the time.

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.
