Where There's No Time
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
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 Dialog
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.
