Andrea Saltini
L'ultima volta... ancora

29.02.16 18.03.16

Andrea Saltini is an artist who defines himself as a poet rather than a painter. When he starts to work, he thinks of a color but many words arise in the paper, the words multiply and appear even structured in prose, as he says. After knowing his works (which are actually in the medium of painting on paper, with few colour touches, being black the main character) and his working process, one can understand why he states the previous. Andrea takes images from his context, the internet, music and whatever inspires him, transforms and combines them producing poetic constellations. He tells stories with melancholic atmospheres, making incongruent connections which result in dark, fantastic and even surreal tones.

For L’ultima volta… ancora, Andrea has analysed the intentional or sometimes forced connections between dancers, the idea of how one person is absorbed by the other, and how the two may become a third different unity or how one erases the other.


Sometimes I do not have time to notice, things happen in a few seconds . Everything changes. I’m alive. I am dead. And the world goes on . Sometimes my heart is as thin as a sheet of paper.

L’ultima volta… ancora
Andrea Saltini


Andrea Saltini completed his residency with an exhibition opened in the ´aceNITE of March 16, the first of 2016. The work of the Italian artist occupied the Dialogue Space and the Central Hall of the ´ace house.

Andrea worked in painting on paper with pieces in different sizes, and in some cases he used colors beyond his habit of working mainly with black and white. We can say that two themes appeared in his series: the one he initially planned to develop during his residence in Buenos Aires –tango– but also works in which the human figures are accompanied by animals or  appear in surreal postures. For the tango, he produced a composition that took the character of a couple of dancers who get closer and closer until they become one, analyzing the intentional or sometimes forced connections between dancers, the idea of how one person is absorbed by the other and how the two may become a third different unity, or how one erases the other.

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.

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.
