Alexander Squier
I saw myself on the street

07.06.10 25.06.10

Alexander Siquier is a young art student, interested in engraving, drawing, photography, video, and installations, who completed his first art residency at ´ace.

Born in Houston, he traveled to Argentina to investigate graphic techniques, and digital research and printing.

During his stay in Buenos Aires, he explored the image of his own body through photography, making an extensive registry of photographic self-portraits to develop a series of images that were the basis for subsequent interventions. Siquier is a great draftsman and caricaturist, techniques that he knew how to integrate into the series of prints in which they also belong with relief techniques and monotypes.

Alexander conceived the work to carry out the installation “I saw myself in the street”, the exhibition may be in the Polyglot Room at the end of his residency.

An impressive exhibition was opened in the Sala Políglota de ´ace where Alexander Squier’s work can be seen after his production residency.

The exhibition reflects the concerns of the young artist who is interested in human relationships, in the ways, “types” or “personalities” that both people and himself develop to communicate.

The installation is conceived as a game of characters in subtle movement. The works hang at different levels and heights in the Polyglot Hall, establishing a game and dialogue between them, thus creating a visual and sound universe – although no exhibition is not accompanied by sound.

I saw myself on the street reflects all these concerns and perceptions that have been the basis for developing his project through the game of describing, identifying and personifying who the artist has around him.

I SAW MYSELF ON THE STREET (by Alexander Squier)

We all have an inherent drive to judge, describe, personify, and identify each and every thing around us. People develop, preserve, and collect “types” as well as physical and auditory meanings to use as reference. If everyone has a different perception (in their own reality) of everyone else, does this mean that there are also innumerable perceptions of each other? What about the diverse and constantly changing perceptions of oneself?

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.

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.
