Beatríz Guzman Catena combines her memories and her Argentine idiosyncrasy (she was born in Bahía Blanca) with her already French modality. He lives in Paris, where he built his family and forged his profession. He travels regularly to Argentina and during his one-week micro-residency, Beatríz worked in the production of small monocopies from old photographs and childhood memories that he treasures engraved in his memory.


I am amazed by the pictorial matter and the way in which the visible can be transformed. It is to venture beyond the figuration, that I use the eyes of others.
I use the visible to go towards that which cannot be seen yet. My characters and the places that host them are reconciled, veiled, unveiled …

Apparitions follow absences – like from sleep to wakefulness – and fade away.

These new links, woven from a family memory, change register thanks to the medium of the pictorial layers, which I compare with the layers of memory, more or less sharp or confusing.

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.
