Camila Bardehle
Approaches to the dialogue between the City and Nature

15.07.19 16.08.19

With the precision of an entomologist, Camila Bardehle has traveled the city, its parks and green squares recording them cartographically and visually while building an artist’s book with the data collected and transcribed with the botanical illustration technique.

The artist work has been mediated by her time living in Tierra del Fuego, which is manifested in the persistency of nature in her work. She has grown in the pedagogical area through a constant search for bringing art closer and using it as a tool for social transformation. Parallelly, she has developed her work from watercolour painting and new media, researching the relationship between habitability and nature, using concepts linked to the hyperreal and the original cosmovision.

Approaches to the dialogue between the City and Nature (by Camila Bardehle)

My work is based on the relationship between watercolour and video from the crossing, linking or colliding of what’s natural in the city of Buenos Aires. I’m interested in seeking and generating encounters and dis-encounters with nature, from a multi-sensorial relationship of the landscape as a home. This is a starting from pictorial exercises and installations that reflect this relationship, my idea is to create paths through maps that witness this crossing between the city and the natural.

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.
