To Inhabit and Remember
Artists in Dialog
For the last ´aceNITE of 2016, occupied all the rooms occupied with an impeccable variety of international and Argentinean artists.
In the Políglota Room, invited artist Shaurya Kumar (India) presented artworks from the series Cast in Ruins, of great technical and conceptual subtlety. Kumar is an artist with a very consolidated international trajectory.
The Central Hall presented the video in progress of the project The reason, by the artist-in-residency Kiwon Hong (South Korea), and the Dialogue Space hosted a site-specific installation by Min-Hyung Kang (South Korea)—both artists were able to do their residencies thanks to ARKO (Arts Council Korea). The installation of Kang’s project Eye of the Hawk, which was a re-creation of a room of the smallest type of residences in the Korean cities, also reached La Torre studio through the windows and involved the performance of security agent who “protected” the ´ace house by taking care of the ´ace logo.
In the Transversal Space, Amanda Coimbra (Brazil), artist selected through the Semillero 2016 call, presented her book Memories of a Travel Album, made from the recovery and selection of photographs of a family album that had suffered a flood.
Finally the Terrace inaugurated a new mural realized in collaboration by the U.S. artist Cosby Hayes and Argentine artist Toia Grehan. The mural resulted in a very good interaction of two quite different imprints towards muralism, Cosby on the one hand with an urban and political iconography and on the other hand Toia Grehan with a bucolic and romantic iconography.
As always, we thank all the people who collaborated with the artists in residence: Germán Gaspar, Julián Matta and Nieves Varela.
