Camila Farina made her second residency at ´ace. After three years, Camila came with a different search but the same gesture, reaching new images through the automatic work and repetition.
Camila Farina’s work pays attention to the image as an ubiquitous element in the relationship with the world, taking it as a physical link and a bridge. Focusing on the image’s materialistic as well as conceptual presence, the plays in the artist’s compositions are based in the repetition. It is through the repetition of an object-image that the artist reveals the peripheral senses at stake in terms of representation.
Camila uses manufacturing, reproduction and circulation techniques as lithography, typography and other types of multiple reproduction techniques.The press, the brand and footprint are everywhere. Mistakes generate new shapes, ancient forms regenerate. Juxtaposing abstraction, figuration, image-text, cartoon, spots… Different regimes in which planes and lines are organized and collide with the immaterial part of the image: idea, meaning, feelings, metaphors… Focusing in techniques that may seem anachronistic is not innocent. What is at stake is the body of images, the weight of writing, the sense of sight. In a world of information that runs in high speeds without strength, Camila Farina is dedicated to produce an enigmatic and attractive work, in which each image has its own time and each track is peeled from one base to another, in an endless movement.
