Nature: a Space of Flows
Andrzej Tarasiuk

17.10.18 21.10.18

Andrzej Tarasiuk presented a multimedia installation to close his residence at ´ace, a new moment in his research on the rivers of Latin America and on the importance of the Amazon as a source for the entire continent, after having traveled through several geographic points relevant to this topic.

Among paintings made with water from the Rio de la Plata and Rio Negro (Brasil), video, watercolors and collage, Tarasiuk also reflects on the attempts of the technique to replicate the functions that a tree fulfills. He designs humidifying, purifying machines and installs them in the landscapes that he encountered through Brazil, Peru and Argentina. For these landscapes, which for now we consider fictitious or dystopian, Tarasiuk took as inspiration also the brutalist and industrial architecture he found in his trips through Buenos Aires.

Tarasiuk works through mechanisms of contemplation, exploration and projection, from the absurd, from a ludic dynamic that the artistic perspective allows and from the acceptance that nature and human are in constant mutual transformation and change.

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.
