From a corner of my memory
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.
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.
