Beth Fein
From a corner of my memory

19.11.12 07.12.12

From a corner of my memory, the project of the North American artist Beth Feminó enaceto brought together the memories that she kept the many times she visited Argentina since her first trip in 1973.

Once again, Beth will immerse herself in today’s culture and develop her work awakening a new vision of Argentina, thus capturing the images that she carries in her memory.

ARTIST’S TESTIMONY

I am continually investigating the blurring of the boundaries between art and the everyday experiences. Objects, dreams, personal experiences and places are interwoven in the warp of my work, expressing the idea that art can affect at any time without prior declaration or delineation. Thus, the basis of my work is the perception of the common.

Movement has always been a basic element of both my two and three-dimensional work, so my final works (initially in ceramic and metal, now in engraving) have always had a kinetic sensitivity that is affected as a natural expression of my training as a dancer.

I am investigating the integration of performance concepts and visual art forms, as well as the random elements involved in these. The process of transformation (the various changes in the image) and the final prints of the engravings modify in many ways the process of creating movement and performance.

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.
