Open Studio

Shadows of the City
Aleksandra Ilkiewicz


Aleksandra Ilkiewicz and Przmek Hoffer arrived at ´ace thanks to an association between the Fundación´ace and the Academy of Fine Arts of Lodz, institution where the artists studied, and with PATA (International Summer Courses—Printmaking and Textile Art).

On December 19th, in the last Open Studio of the year, both Polish artists presented Shadows of the City, a work developed during their residency in ´ace‘s workshop.

SHADOWS OF THE CITY (by Aleksandra Ilkiewicz and Przmek Hoffer)

This project arises from the exploration of issues related to the remediation of digital and analogical orders, as well as the indirectly existing noise that consists in creating interferences, making them an effect and an artistic theme in the publication of fanzines. Aleksandra and Przemek have sought authentic and everyday experiences in the streets of the City of Buenos Aires. They consider the graphic declaration as a process which is not about an understandable understanding, but a creative participation.

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.
