Underwater

10.12.18 14.12.18

Carlos Doria is an Argentinean artist who has been living for many years in Washington, DC and in New York City. He participated in a Production micro-Residency at the ´ace workshops, where he experimented with printmaking and disposable plastic bags to create images representing imaginary water.

ARTIST STATEMENT

The influence of climate change on the distribution of water is a message that I want to convey in my images. The idea of water covering islands, flooding cities and forcing people to relocate brings a big question to me. What will be the future of our landscapes and cities and how will people adapt to the intrusion of water?

Climate change is complex. Millions of people like me live totally isolated from nature. We must understand what future generations will face if nature collapses. From my artistic viewpoint I can only bring awareness through what my imagination creates. The challenge is to raise awareness and hope.

Adaptation, transformation and water are words that I use to inspire my project. Humans will only look for beauty or meaning in the creation of their surroundings. Using the disposable plastic bags, I want to create an image reminiscent of deep water. Underwater is a process to create layered elements representing those that will vanish and those that will transform and become part of our natural surroundings.

ARTIST STATEMENT

The influence of climate change on water distribution is a message that I want to convey in my images. The idea of water covering islands, floods in cities and people forced to move raises a big question for me: what will be the future of our landscapes and cities and how will people adapt to the intrusion of water?

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.
