To feel doesn’t occupy space

04.11.15 16.12.15

Montserrat (Monsy) Delgado, together with Paz Crotto and Isabel Martínez de Hoz, is one of the three artists from Buenos Aires selected through the inQubarte open call to be part of an  exhibition in the context of that program.

Montserrat searched to deconstruct the fashion language as well as the double speech adopted by the media for publicity. In a deeper appreciation, she analyzed the concept of desire by taking objects of desire from different fashion magazines. She experimented transferring those images belonging to the fashion world with different techniques as transfer, printing in a variety of papers, stencils, scans, decoupage and more. At first, she recorded these experiences with her camera. Later on she took pictures of the collages and at last, by sublimation, she took those to the fabric. At that point, fabric infiltrated into her work. By using tulle clouds and – consciously or unconsciously- making use of the multiple meanings of this material (bridesmade’s veil, crib, mosquito net) the installation that Monsy developed in the ‘ace’s mezzanine, tries to expand the ideas and spaces that structure her work.

All the meanings provided by the dictionary of the word “feel” start with the word “experiment” and it is not by chance that this installation was originated by the need to experiment space, to try to approach it, to capture it and to live it.  In the piece “To feel doesn’t occupy space” I try to make that the spectator experiments his own need to cross the space with the urgency of a person that goes through a labyrinth. I propose that we submerge in the stillness of the cloth, to look through the transparencies, to get tangled by it, trying to rethink our own certainties regarding feeling. While we submerge in this tulle cloud, we move around distorted images, as a faithful allegory of how the others affect our own feelings.    

Once I heard that “To see is to believe, but feeling is being sure” and taking this phrase as a starting point I understand that there is no neutrality in feelings, on the contrary, feelings are the most proper that we have  and that is why this installation aims to experience duality and doubt, by knowing that in order to feel genuinely, we need to abandon  certainties.

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.
