During his SUB30 ‘acePIRAR residency, Alex Huninhgake developed a series of silk screen and relief prints featuring the classical male figure in various dream-like environments, aimed at addressing spiritual and mystical questions.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Signs and symbols surround us. They have the power to transcend language, culture, and time. They engage us in the abstract world of imagination, memory, spirituality, and dreams. In order to effectively communicate our thoughts and feelings, human beings draw upon a vast symbolic lexicon that dates back to ancient times. It is woven deep into the fabric of our collective unconscious. I am interested in how symbolic imagery is consumed universally, then processed via individual experience. In my work, I use the vocabulary of metaphor to generate complex visual phrases that adapt to the viewer’s unique interpretation.

Spirit of Man explores the role of religious and spiritual ideals in our increasingly globalized modern world. This series combines the imagery of the ubiquitous South American roadside shrine with European sculpture to reflect on the unique cultural crossroads that is Buenos Aires.

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.
