´aceNITE

Inhabiting fantasy
Artists in Dialog

18.12.19

The formal opening of artists in residence DOROTHY YOON (South Korea) and PHILIPPE BLANCHARD (Canada) took place on the last ´aceNITE of 2019. As a closing event for the year 2019, we received an important audience composed mostly by artists, curators, writers and public.

At our house´s entrance hall, there was a work by Blanchard that consisted of a stop-motion film made from a large series of screen-printings during his residency at ´ace.  In the Poliglota room, Yoon´s installation and video projection titled “The eye of Borges” took us into the writer imagination and Yoon’s fantasy. Finally, Mariana Rodriguez Iglesias, as a guest curator, selected the work of an Argentine artist called Cecilia Soldano that was exhibited in the Transversal Space.

The three artists who presented their works in the last event of 2019 have something in common: fantasy. Dorothy Mi Yeon Yoon sublimates elements of her life and experiences lived through magic and mysticism; Philippe Blanchard plays with the appearance of geometric shapes in time and space as if a spell gave brought them to life; Cecilia Soldano manipulates, and at the same time represents, elements of the earth in a manner close to alchemy. The three exhibitions together made an interesting reflection about how to create fantasy in a conscious manner.

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.
