Artist Julie Krone presented large-scale prints that respond to the architecture and language of Buenos Aires, quoting the sala políglota balcony door, for the ‘aceNITE Traces and as part of the project Mimicry.
The artist played with manipulations and seductions inherent in the written word and expanded them into visual patterns.For this project we utilized a new technique developed in ´ace using photo litho plates that are sensible to laser beans.
Mimicry, often set up as the opposite of ‘originality’ or ‘uniqueness’, is designated an inferior position, and yet it is the vehicle through which shared communication and meaningful interaction take place.
It is through mimicking that I will attempt to understand other cultures and make work that is open to mis-translation. The overlap of cultures and their languages create dynamic passages, where ownership is debated and exchange takes place.
