Alicia Kelly
SunLight, MoonLight

23.02.14 16.03.14

Alicia Kelly was born and raised among the red dirt and wildflowers of northeastern Oklahoma. The country landscape and fauna of the midwest left a deep impression on Kelly that continues to inspire her artwork. In addition, her love of paper, developed alongside her love of  Indian textiles and screen-printing,  which lead her to the meditative practice of cutting paper.
Alicia´s current proposal for her residency at ´ace, among the SUB30 Program, will take shape through an installation with vinyl and paper cuts, which create shadows that change according to the sunlight. 

ARTIST STATEMENT
I have always been fascinated with shadows and light, with the space at ´ace. I would like to utilize the time working on the installation outside, as well as inside. With the use of the sun at all times of the day, I’d like to learn how the shadows change with the angles of the sun in Buenos Aires, and how my piece can organically grow along the changes.

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.
