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.

ARTIST STATEMENT

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.

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.
