Marit Heinen’s creative process is based on research, observation and writing. During her time at ‘ace she questioned herself about “What is being social?” and, “How are the objects related to this?”. At the end of the residency she raised a visual proposal  that combined photography, video and drawing, capturing her observations about the interaction between people and their personal spaces in the culture of Buenos Aires.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I think that my works can be, roughly, divided in two different strands: on the one hand I often make works where people are taking over the objects. In the sense that the objects are shaped by human behaviour, or even moulded around the human body. On the other hand I make works where the situation is reversed, objects take over people – the human body and/or behaviour is being shaped by and forced to adapt to the object(s).

What is common to both of these stands is the social interaction – between people or between people and objects. Through my works I am questioning what being social means by creating situations that forces us to consider how we are social. I am intrigued by our strive for balance that often just points out or even creates an unbalance in the situation.

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.
