When Species Meet…
Bomi Ahn

09.12.21 17.12.21

During the last residency period of 2021, Bomi Ahn, artist-in-residency from South Korea present thanks to the agreement that Fundación´ace has with ARKO-Arts Council Korea, worked exploring contemporary techniques of printmaking and expanded print media to transfer her paintings and drawings to the multiple format.

Taking as triggers the ideas that Donna Haraway, American philosopher and thinker, proposes in her text When Species Meet…, Bomi Ahn represented virtual worlds where all kinds of species are synthesized and composed together, with a clear inspiration in movies of science fiction, novels and life conditions influenced by technology and different forms of organicity. Ahn feels that there is a realistic side to science fiction movies and our imaginations as they reflect our unconscious and desires in a surreal way.

Her installation was presented to the public on December 9, 2021, at the ´aceNITE entitled When marks meet…, in which she shared the inauguration of her work with that of her Korean colleague Hanna Kim and the Argentinian artist Guillermo Mena.

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.
