Flora Hubot is a Belgian artist with an Argentinean mother who has been traveling often around Argentina in the last few years. Flora develops her work exploring the boundaries between public/private, inside/outside. Because of this, the media she uses is portable and in some cases is left/put free in the public space, where its life cycle changes according to contingencies that the artist no longer controls.
The project for ´ace consisted in continuing a practice of dialogue with the outside (the street, the city, province, country) and the inside (the workshop, the institution, the museum). The realization of the project happened in two steps, it started with a personal look, a selection of images or materials collected from my context, a reflection, and after that the shaping of the work inside the workshop. The work has a nomadic end allowing mobility and interaction.

Artists in Dialog
Visions was a special ´aceNITE, in which we focused on contemporary graphics from the production of various national and international artists.
In the Políglota Room we presented works from the series (Re) Read by Beth Grabowski (USA), artist in residency during April-May 2016. In the Central Hall, Dialogue Space and Transversal Space, the works of 11 Argentinean artists were exhibited, who were invited to a group exhibition to homage Grabowski. In the Workshop, Flora Hubot (Belgium) and in La Torre, Bruna Pastorini (Brazil) showed the work produced during their respective residences in recent months in ´ace as an Open Studio.
A night in which the artists could, in addition to showing their work, dialogue with each other and with the community of Buenos Aires that visited us.
The Fold @ Buenos Aires
This exhibition, presented in the July 19th, 2017 ´aceNITE, was the result of the 3rd International Project of Graphic Interaction and Printing, The Fold / Double Unfolded, with the participation of 17 artistic, training, creation and research centres from 11 countries (Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Spain, United States, France, Mexico, Portugal, Serbia, Taiwan). With a total of 224 artworks in the form of a sheet of paper, this project seeks to promote the cultural circulation that allows graphic editing across borders, revalorizing the format of the book from its basic module: the fold.
The Fold/ Double, Unfolded was organized by the dx5 Group of the University of Vigo in Pontevedra, Spain in collaboration with the Department of Philosophy and Arts of the University of Quebec in Canada. Proyecto´ace was one of the participating centers of this project. In 2016, ´ace invited 19 artists to produce their works by intervening a sheet of paper folded in 2, using print media and / or other resources that generate multiple images and editing them in several prints.
STATEMENT The Fold/ Double, Unfolded
The space of The Fold is meant as a whole fragmented into four separate linked spaces, in which opposition relationships, reflexivity, contiguity and sequencing are established. The fold, like the book, opens and closes, withholds, shows and hides at the same time. The bonding of different folds makes a book; a device that works as a nest through its emergency zone and the matching that is the fold, which acts like as an unfolding hinge.

The Fold: making of
Artists in dialogue
Proyecto´ace has been invited as one of the participating centres for the international project EL PLIEGO / doble desdoblado, the 3rd Project of creation and international exchange between universities and educational centres in the graphic arts and international edition, organised by the Grupo dx5 of the Universidad de Vigo in Pontevedra, Spain in collaboration with the Department of Philosophy and the Arts, University of Quebec in Canada.
This project aims to continue the promotion of cultural movement across borders that printmaking allows (such as multiplication, versatility and transportability), revaluing the book format from its base module: the fold.
Artists, teachers and art students participate in a project that aims to reflect on the idea of the fold, taking the space of a sheet as the starting point and the encounter that these fold causes.
COLLABORATIVE WORK (by Adriana Moracci)
What is The Fold and how to approach and shape not only an image, but a concept that called Proyecto ´ace to be part of an International Project.
During intense days of work and reflection, 19 artists were selected to work collaboratively in the ´ace workshop, creating editions of the works that made up what was sent.
The themes that were developed from the simple and profound idea of The Fold were enriched and shaped by the most varied visions in this regard. Thus, the specification referring to the body, the identity, the memory, the absence, the infinity, the prayer, the plots, the trace were all giving shape to the works produced. The meetings and video conferences prior to the edition days in the workshop were a stimulus and reason for reflection for the group of artists called.
The project opened the possibility of collaborative work not only between the participating artists in each venue, but also provided the opportunity to extend the communication networks between those who participated in it, showing once again that from the simplest ideas, multiple voices can emerge.
