Estefanía Araujo is Argentine but lives in England. She is currently pursuing a Master of Visual Arts at the Camberwell College of Arts in London. During her stay with us she sought to explore memory and identity through images of old photographs of her family in Argentina. Trained in photography, she has been working with photographs, letters and texts from her family that she has collected over the years and has created new images combining different techniques.

ARTIST STATEMENT
The creative process is from a trip to the past, to an analysis of our roots, of the stories that were told to us as children and formed our imaginary and what we are today. Photography being the medium with which I am most familiar and the one I studied for years, is the concept of the photographic image and the use of photographic archives in the plastic arts; as well as the use of the private image taken to a public context, something that interests me and a very important theoretical part behind my projects.

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.
