Telo me Everything (by Aubrey Vollrath)

My project is exploring the eccentricities and inspirations of the popular Telos (love motels) that dabble the streets of Buenos Aires with quirk and character. Some of these hotels are themed, with rooms full of zebra print and leather, or plastic ‘stained glass’ windows fixed to the ceiling, mirrors and reflective surfaces everywhere.

What makes a good love motel? I’m interested in exploring the aesthetic of rooms specifically designed for sex. What fantasy awaits for the user? What spaces are missed in the translation of these pleasure palaces, and the reality of what actually lurks within them. My art aims to bridge the gap of erotic expectations first through photography and continued through abstraction of different mixed medias.

A Macrocosm
Artists in dialogue

03.07.19

On Wednesday, July 3, we inaugurated the projects of the Production Residences for the months of June-July 2019 by Daniela Rivera (Chile-USA) and Aubrey Vollrath (USA), together with an open studio by Rashid Lane (USA), who shared the results of his Exploration Residency. The works of Daniela and Aubrey coexisted in dialogue with two guest projects: an installation by Constanza Abete (Argentina) and the Micro-Macrocosmos2018 portfolio, organized by the International Graphics Exchange Program (IPEP) of India, with the participation of Argentinean artist Floki Gauvry.

Daniela Rivera’s project, In Search of the Andes was a work in collaboration with Argentinean artists Guillermo Mena and Javier Bustos.

In Search for the Andes is born from the need to go deep in the experience of immigration beside the politics, economics, and social aspects. It is a a project that explores the experience of instability brought by the lack of referent to recall identity. For this work, Daniela, Guillermo and Javier worked together from the attempt to retrieve memories, to create inside the exhibition space a new place that resists consumption and points to the emptying of memory. A job sprouting from the exhausting experience of relocation and displacement.

Aubrey Vollrath’s project sought to explore the eccentricities of the telos of Buenos Aires and its peculiar characteristics: “What makes a good love motel? I am interested in exploring the aesthetics of rooms specifically designed for sex, and the curatorship that they do of the fantasies of an unknown other”.

Rashid Lane opened its research on the local Afro-descendant diaspora to the public of Fundación´ace, which in the near future will trigger a series of triptych paintings that will characterize the narrative of the different cultural origins of people of African descent in Argentina.

The MICRO-MACROCOSMOS exhibition (sponsored in Buenos Aires by Fundación´ace) is a series of international graphic works by artists from India, Argentina, Mexico, USA, Poland, Finland, Russia, Turkey, Pakistan, Taiwan, Australia, Portugal and Nepal, made in 2018 and gathered through IPEP.

Constanza Abete, selected artist within the Semillero 2019 open call, presented White Noise II , an installation that took place in the transversal space of our house. The entire walls of the space were covered by masks in gauze and plaster combined with the reproduction of a recording of white noise.

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.
