Stop War / Net Voyne!
In the first ´aceNITE of 2022 (and the first since the pandemic began), we had different activities and the presentation of several exhibitions. Among them, Ioulia Akhmadeeva, Russian-Mexican artist-in-residency who came to our studio for a Production Residency to produce an artist’s book and new series of her work in printmaking and graphic arts.
Ioulia presented in the Dialogue Space part of the production she made during the 4 weeks of her residency in our workshop, exhibiting engravings on paper with motifs linked to her family history and the current war situation in which her native country is involved. In addition, she was invited by Alicia Candiani to participate in the international itinerant exhibition The world IS/IN a handkerchief (organized by Cecilia Mandrile) as part of the genealogy of Proyecto´ace, for which she specially produced a piece linked to the theoretical guidelines of the project.
The main theme in the production and research of Ioulia’s work is memory, with the recording and construction of narratives in various formats, techniques and disciplines. Her family, her origin, migrations, paths of destiny, ties between people… these are her starting points on a long walk through the labyrinths of life and art. Memory recorded, drawn, engraved, embroidered, recycled, encapsulated, transferred, modified, intervened, contained, stopped… In her works, she sustains the idea of traces, of imprint, of memorizing and immortalizing memories on and within images, related pages and objects.
