Aleksandra works in collaboration with Przemek Hoffer. The duo produces audio-visual projects in the areas of techno, deep techno and dub techno, and also prints metal types every day, looking for positive vibrations at the same time. In this residency period they will be working together on a new project called Shadows of the City.
I am exploring issues related to the remediation of digital and analogue orders as well as indirectly existing noise consisting in creating interferences, making them an effect and an artistic subject in the publication of fanzines. I am looking for authentic and everyday experiences that I find on the streets of Buenos Aires. I consider graphic statement as a process in which it is not about understandable but about creative involvement.

SHADOWS OF THE CITY (by Aleksandra Ilkiewicz and Przmek Hoffer)
This project arises from the exploration of issues related to the remediation of digital and analogical orders, as well as the indirectly existing noise that consists in creating interferences, making them an effect and an artistic theme in the publication of fanzines. Aleksandra and Przemek have sought authentic and everyday experiences in the streets of the City of Buenos Aires. They consider the graphic declaration as a process which is not about an understandable understanding, but a creative participation.
