Artists in dialogue
During this ´aceNITE ´ace introduced two projects related, in some way, because they were ephemeral and perform direct interventions on the walls.
In the Políglota Room we projected a video that registered “In Concrete:Urban Graphics”, an urban intervention made by the Puerto Rican artist Rafael Trelles during his residence in Proyecto´ace. The public had the opportunity to watch the video and also dialogue with the artist on the concepts and techniques he used. In addition, as a testimony of the project, the stencils -used to “print” the walls and carry out the interventions- were exposed as well as the designs of The Southern Highway and Little Paradise in CNC cut format. All the pieces stayed installed into the Poliglota Room and the Central Hall in ´ace house until December 2007.
On other hand, in the Transversal Space, public appreciated and interacted with Romina Biglieri´s intervention E.S.D.S. / Elementary Samples of Daily Symmetry. The piece, a direct drawing on the wall, registered “the energy lines”, routes that virtually represent the movement of each individual in a given space. On the day of the opening, as well as along the time that the work was on view, the artists in residence and the people could draw their own “lines and routes” inside the house, so the work transmuted day by day.
