Graphic Park: Total Fun is the name of the exhibition in which the Brazilian artist Eduardo Eloy showed the public of Buenos Aires the series of works he made during his August-September residency in ´ace. The residency was sponsored by the Brazilian Embassy in Buenos Aires and the Ministry of Culture, Government of Brazil.

Graphic park in Portuguese is the name of a large printing plant, like that of a newspaper. Thus, the artist makes a play on words in his original language between a printing workshop and an amusement park that is nothing more than a reflection of his way of working … a playful game between the found object, his imprint on the paper, the contributions received and his extraordinary expertise to generate images and content through them.

-ALICIA CANDIANI

“The choice of the name of this body of work is not a cause but a reflection of its meanings. Fun is the motto of a printing press (graphic park in NT Portuguese) that is not in the workshop but in the world. The graphic sign It is the artist’s personal brand, which is diluted and intertwined with other signs found in the remains of materials discarded in the streets, in the image archives of the artist himself and other people, who enter the creative scene as participants in this game of collaboration engendered by Eduardo Eloy. The playful force of the work is based on the relationships that the artist built with the other, with objects and with the environment. In this game between man and things, homo faber and homo ludens find their poetic creators not only in the world and but in themselves.

In this cartography, the means of collaboration migrate from their own studio to the streets, workshops and spaces, being crossed by the collaborators, all of them involved in a collection of objects-traces of a world as large receptacles of the signs that move the artist for your constructions. In the moments between collections and relationships, Eloy is a proponent, communicator and receiver of ideas and actions that find a place in a network of processes that form the visual field, which is nothing but a mere consequence of this interdisciplinary game.

This procedural point of view of the work is found in the thought of Cecilia Almeida Salles and her mapping of the complex network of relationships between the work and the processes, pointing out the finished object as part of an unfinished process, understanding “work” as ” the time of the process “.
