As collaborators, Baker & Felsenthal are interested in the experimental and the experiential. They seek to make work in conversation with place, and in the spirit of exploration. While in residence at ´ace, Alex & Lily embarked on the beginnings of a new project, reading and engaging with the translated work of several venerated Argentine writers and developing new work inspired by and in conversation with their work. In Buenos Aires, they engaged with a new mode of experiential research, immersing themselves in the literary tradition of the city by visiting historical places such as the Villa Ocampo, the Recoleta Cemetery, as well as numerous sites of contemporary artistic experimentation and discovery.
