With the sponsorship of the Ministry of Culture of Brazil and the Embassy of Brazil in Argentina, Eduardo Eloy came to Buenos Aires bringing with him all his fantastic imagery in the search to continue a project that he has been developing in the last two years: Graphic Park-Total Entertainment .
Regarding her work, which she deepened during her residency in Buenos Aires, the Art Historian Luciana Eloy says: “The choice of the name of this body of work is not a cause but a reflection of its meanings. Fun is the motto of order of a graphic park that is not in the workshop but in the world. The graphic sign is the artist’s personal brand, which is diluted and intertwined with other signs found in the remains of materials discarded in the streets, in the image archives of the The artist himself and other people, who enter the creative scene as participants in this collaborative game engendered by Eduardo Eloy.

(…) In Graphic Park- Total Fun, the end of the creation process is not sought, but the creation of this relational construction, the result of which establishes a meeting in the visual field. This is where Eloy captures the forms between the floating fields of color, textures, symbols and matter. A physical space, child of relational space, the result of the creation of a place inside and outside of the person, a generated space and the generator of life, fun and meanings. ”

ARTIST STATEMENT
The concept of this project is the appropriation of images through an experimental and symbolic process through the collection of various discarded materials for reconstruction or recycling. In this way, the materials become supports and conductors for new images and are transformed into artistic works.
My goal is to achieve a constant dialogue with the images worked, to generate a discussion between the opposition of fragmented forms and the space they occupy, generating new possibilities for images and various levels of observation.

Graphic Park: Total Fun is the name of the exhibition in which the Brazilian artist Eduardo Eloy showed the public of Buenos Aires the series of works he made during his August-September residency in ´ace. The residency was sponsored by the Brazilian Embassy in Buenos Aires and the Ministry of Culture, Government of Brazil.

Graphic park in Portuguese is the name of a large printing plant, like that of a newspaper. Thus, the artist makes a play on words in his original language between a printing workshop and an amusement park that is nothing more than a reflection of his way of working … a playful game between the found object, his imprint on the paper, the contributions received and his extraordinary expertise to generate images and content through them.

-ALICIA CANDIANI

“The choice of the name of this body of work is not a cause but a reflection of its meanings. Fun is the motto of a printing press (graphic park in NT Portuguese) that is not in the workshop but in the world. The graphic sign It is the artist’s personal brand, which is diluted and intertwined with other signs found in the remains of materials discarded in the streets, in the image archives of the artist himself and other people, who enter the creative scene as participants in this game of collaboration engendered by Eduardo Eloy. The playful force of the work is based on the relationships that the artist built with the other, with objects and with the environment. In this game between man and things, homo faber and homo ludens find their poetic creators not only in the world and but in themselves.

In this cartography, the means of collaboration migrate from their own studio to the streets, workshops and spaces, being crossed by the collaborators, all of them involved in a collection of objects-traces of a world as large receptacles of the signs that move the artist for your constructions. In the moments between collections and relationships, Eloy is a proponent, communicator and receiver of ideas and actions that find a place in a network of processes that form the visual field, which is nothing but a mere consequence of this interdisciplinary game.

This procedural point of view of the work is found in the thought of Cecilia Almeida Salles and her mapping of the complex network of relationships between the work and the processes, pointing out the finished object as part of an unfinished process, understanding “work” as ” the time of the process “.
