WHERE THERE´S NO TIME (by Dolores Delia)
Time doesn’t exist. Freedom as I think, doesn´t either.

The corral is on my mind. Freedom is an invention of the mind because we are always prisoners of something or someone else. Art is the seek of Freedom I constantly pursue. She owns me, and I own her shadow

An instant is made of various components that escape our eyes. Occasionally, we come across a place where our eyes and mind capture everything, where the clock’s needles go anticlockwise because time doesn’t exist. This thing happens rarely. Moments freeze on mi camera. They crumble in my mind and deploy in different artistic ways that sometimes I can only imagine them in my head.

Art needs inspiration. Inspiration is the everyday that gets stuck in our skin, like and invisible tattoo. Magic is in the skin, and the skin is like paper. It does not forget. Everything I put on paper is a register of the invisible world. Of this Freedom non-existent in its entirety, of the horses as a symbol of this Utopic Freedom, of time that goes by without me noticing it, of the marks that the outworld produces on me, of the colors I sense, the time I lost and regain every time I make art. Engravings start in my skin. Passions die in my head. Time chases me, and I chase Freedom. I breakdown moments to immortalize them.

Where There’s No Time
Dolores Delia


During her residency, Dolores Delia learned the technique of photolithography, which helped her work on themes of memory and the moving, which remain but transmute.

After crossing the Andes mountains on horseback, she used her residence time to transform and combine photographic records of different moments in the travel and combined them with her experience. Delia is an artist that produces in a fast pace and beyond the edges imposed by paper. Her dynamics encourage us to say that she seeks to achieve the pace of the flow and overtflow of her thoughts.

In the Open Studio on Wednesday March 21st, she exhibited the works carried out in Fundación´ace‘s workshop and shared her creative and productive process with the visitors.

Artists in Dialogue


Reflejos was an event that combined the opening of the exhibition Divina Presencia by artist in residence Teresita Jiménez (Chile) and the Open Studios of Dolores Delia (Arg.), Esperanza Grez (Chile) and artists from the collective residency [Espacio en Blanco] 2.

As it usually happens in each residence period, ties and coincidences were generated beyond what we expected. The three artists in residence developed artwork in the photolithographic technique for the first time and the interests behind their work had many correlations, as the route of the Cordillera de los Andes, the contact between Argentina and Chile and the connection of man and nature as well as the connection human-city.

The artists in [Espacio en Blanco]2 worked on individual projects but we could say that the reflection about the routes through the city, the ways of recording the paths, the memory and inheritance was given at a general level. They worked in varied media, from artist’s book, intervention with illustration in the house of ´ace, photography, performance, video, sound art, installation and textile art.

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.
