Approaches to the dialogue between the City and Nature
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.
