Miroslava Ledo
SI-aLa-VIE

09.04.12 30.04.12

Miroslava Ledo is a Venezuelan artist, daughter of Spanish parents. She currently lives in Paris, France. During her residency in our workshops, Miroslava worked on the making and editing of an artist’s book.

The project was inspired by the close relationship between human beings and nature, about what the artist calls “secret connections”. That unique NATURE-MAN soul that expresses a message capable of causing a subtle awakening of consciousness, restoring the ties of empathy and hope.

SIaLaVie (by Miroslava Ledo)

SIaLaVie (Yes to life) revolves around the appreciation of nature from various floating, wandering, impermanent elements, emblems of a fickle, ephemeral world.

The idea is that when unfolding the book, it works as a whole in any sense that it is read or observed (horizontal or vertical, as a book or as a floating work and / or portable mural), a kind of walking and permanent matrix of that rich nature and impermanent.

Implicit in the flow of each element, of each gesture, of each expression or trace left in space-time and the way they are imprinted in our memory and our feelings, is a questioning by and for future generations … birth, transformation, death, continuity or extinction endless movement or not? … where do we go? … do we move consciously or in the unconsciousness of everyday life? … can emotions such as wonder and melancholy make us come out of sleepwalking and go towards the search for a new harmony of common existence?

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.
