Geneva Foster Gluck
Old Bird

26.01.15 13.02.15

Artist and performer Geneva Foster-Gluck,  grew up in Arizona with political-activist hippie parents who named her after the 1973 Geneva Peace Conference. After training as a gymnast and dancer, and working in America’s ‘underground’ circus movement, she moved to London in 2003 and started her own circus company, Sugar Beast Circus.  Currently she lives and works in Tucson, Arizona.

During the Exploration Residency, Geneva will develop the “script” of a visual performance project which combines autobiographical and fictional writing, video, image and animation, and live performance. For this she will collect images, sounds and narrative inspiration from the city of Buenos Aires.


My practice as an artist can be described as an evolution of visual storytelling, where emotional and intellectual curiosities becomes animated through live performance. Using extreme physicality, imagination and nonlinear connections with fact, science and history to sketch intuitive landscapes, alternate realities and new discourse with mainstream culture.

I will use the ´ace Residence to explore new ways of creating visual narratives which combine digital image, text and live performance.  I  will focus on  the themes of the female athlete and the ageing body.

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.
