She present
Carolina Azálgara

04.11.15 20.11.15

After she completed her residency, artist Carolina Azálgara, exhibited her installation Ella Presente (She Present) in the Transversal Space at the Fundación ‘ace in the ‘ aceNITE of November 4th, 2015.

As her works are in small format, and printed on paper and tulle, Azálgara made ​​an installation with a playful and nostalgic tone, that included drawings that could be read to children. In that way, she evoked moments and atmospheres of human development, growth and changes in family ties. She emphasized the constant decision-making that occurs in the construction of our identity through the repetition of an image with different clothes, naked, exposing the “stitchings” of life. Through the illustrations on the wall and the connection of the prints through the sewing thread, the artist made us think about the movements of deterritorialization within our own searches of identity and self-recognition.


In my work I explore the family as a social institution, and the bonds between the individuals who are part of these relationships. I also look into the individual as a final result of the family core. Emphasizing the individual outside the family, as a self-sufficient, independent and autonomous being.

These matters are approached as self portraits through people, who conformed a family or other social circles. Explaining how, in an indirect way, the relationships between the individual and family.

I use symbology equivalent to a personal language or medium to express the subjects I’m approaching. Using sew and some traditional printmaking techniques that allows the interpretation of wounds, stitches, sutures and emotional scars, originated as a result of certain events that happened in the past, inside the family core. Sometimes known as the personal baggage we carry along in past relationships and in life.The process of work is sequential, in order of events. I’m interested in telling stories which they could be autobiographical but also could be anyone else’s story.
