The Axer

04.11.15 16.12.15

Paz Crotto, together with Isabel Martinez de Hoz and Monserrat (Monsy) Delgado, is one of the artists from Buenos Aires who were selected from the inQubarte call and invited to hold an exhibition of their works in the context of this program. Although each one of them presents an individual work, we were interested in bringing them together because these proposals have a very strong self-referential content, dialoguing in the narration of three stories with personal and family connotations.

ARTIST’S CONCEPTUAL MEMORY
Look at the young woman at the axman who lives in a hermit house in the mountains. It is a reconstruction project of a man who worked in my grandmother’s field. I met him when he was four years old and we buried him there the day after I turned eighteen. On vacation, we left the city behind and traveled to the mountains. For years I looked fascinated at her worn body, her hermit house on the edge of the stream, her stay with the animals, her lack of modesty, her immeasurable loneliness.
“Many times I went. We smoked cigarettes, because he liked to see us smoke. The three of us were. We prayed an Our Father, a Hail Mary and we lit some candles. I always talked to him. And I was telling her, whenever we come to Córdoba we are going to come visit you. One night I dreamed that he would come and give me a hug. They say that when the person needs to be visited, you dream it. And I had to go visit her. Souls want you to visit them. “(Excerpt from an interview with Rosa, December 14, 2014).

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.
