Bimbi Larraburu
#Futuro

27.05.21 08.07.21

Visual artist and architect. Architecture has led Bimbi to her artistic gaze and her way of working, driven by the need to investigate spaces. She studied Art Direction at the School of Advertising Creatives and Architecture at the University of Buenos Aires where she found the influence for her plastic work. Influenced by deconstruction and her life in the city, her images are a collection of illusory cities. She began her artistic training in 2004 with Heriberto Zorrilla and Helena Distéfano´s workshop. She performed a work clinic with Tulio de Sagastizabal in 2018 and 2019. In 2020 she did a virtual residency at World of Co., Sofia, Bulgaria. Among her exhibitions, we can mention her individual samples at the Saatchi Gallery in London, Start Art Fair, Solo Exhibition in Agora Gallery, New York City, United States. And in group shows, at the Contemporary Art Space of Mendoza, Argentina, the Museum of the end of the world in Ushuaia, Argentina and in the Doncelles Cultural Center, DF, Mexico among others.

ARTIST´S STATEMENT 

The city, the structures, the straight line, are the triggers of the constructions that inhabit my works. I am interested in exploring the relationship between real spaces and imaginary spaces. My practice explores the tension between chaos and order and questions the limits of the architecture language in the visual arts.

Through different materials and resources, I compose my works in two and three dimensions generating projects, paintings, drawings, sculptural objects, models and installations in space.

ABOUT FUTURE

Think #FUTURE. Being #TogetherApart. Hack for a while the restrictions of this pandemic world  generating community and learning to live differently.

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.
