Florencia Alborcen
#Futuro

27.05.21 08.07.21

Artist and nomadic soul, born and based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She uses Photography as an artistic medium since she was 15 years old, then she started incorporating and diving into video art. Flor is currently in reconnection with the body-space and emotions-time, deepening this search through Dance and Performativity.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

My work and my being are in constant movement and change. Integrating stillness and calm as part of balance. One of my greatest intrigues comes from understanding intangible human experiences, as well as communicating my own and the sensations that they generate both visual, sound and physical.

I conceive art as a tool for knowledge about the emotional life of humanity. Art as a revealer of clues about who we are, what we do here, where we are headed as humanity. I believe that art can lead us to healing as individuals and lead us to why not be a better society. My intention is to help expand that knowledge so discredited by reason developing sensory experiences not only my work but in my day to day.

ABOUT #FUTURO

Being, sharing, showing oneself, being vulnerable, giving and receiving are the essential bases to be able to imagine a future. This residence Together apart: #Futuro provided all that and much more. Thinking, analyzing and sketching a possible future in collaboration brings a great gift that takes us out of our own individuality. Excellent residence that undoubtedly could not have had the same result without the great interventions of Daniela, Andy and Alicia.

The group exercise with Cecilia and Elsa was both a great experience and a great challenge since we were artists from different disciplines. Personally, the learning took place when I left my comfort zone and took me to try another type of discipline such as Land 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.
