We Were Looking for Ourselves in Each Other

10.04.23 05.05.23

Daniela Eorendjian Torrente is a Brazilian artist whose work has been exhibited in several institutions and museums in Brazil, England and Colombia. She participated in the Descubrimientos portfolio reading section at the PhotoESPAÑA 2022 International Photography Festival and her work is part of the collection of the Museu da Imagem e do Som de São Paulo (MIS). As a woman and granddaughter of four survivors of the Armenian Genocide, her research focuses on issues of forced displacement, the impact on the lives of women in refugee situations and their descendants, as well as on issues of feminism, involving identity, memory (and its erasure), prejudice, oppression, religious faith, social reorganization, belonging and everyday life. She uses photography as the basis for her work, but also navigates painting, video, printmaking and other languages.

Daniela came to Buenos Aires to do work on her research on the Armenian diaspora. Here, ´ace built a network of Armenian women with whom Daniela could sit down and talk about their experiences as members of the Armenian community. About her project, Daniela Says: “The Armenian Diaspora in Argentina is very united, I am interested in getting closer to the colony. This project seeks to build a memory from the stories of descendants of survivors of the Armenian Genocide, I believe that building this memory and keeping it alive can help me understand who I am and help more people reflect on these events.

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.
