11.06.21

Guadalupe Arriegue is a visual artist and writer, graduated in Literature from the UBA, professor at the School of Art and Patrimony of UNSAM and researcher at the Center for Artistic and Patrimony Research (UNSAM – CONICET). She is a programmer for Turma and the FELIFA—Photography Book Festival. Her recent projects include the exhibition Multiverso (BPhoto creation grant, Spain) and the visual poetry publication Revuelta (selected by the SCANphotobooks festival, Spain, and the ZUM magazine, Brazil).

Guadalupe is developing an extended Production Residency at´ace, during which she investigates engraving as an expressive and technical tool for printing images of Latin American skies and archaeological sites, exploring various photographic processes to broaden the spectrum of copying possibilities offered by engraving.

ABOUT WE SEE THE SAME SKY

The project Vemos el mismo cielo (“We See the Same Sky”) is an exhibition and book based on a visual investigation in process made of documentary photographs of skies, observatories, archaeological sites and museums throughout Latin America, and includes celestial maps and mythology of indigenous cultures. We follow the same celestial bodies as the first inhabitants of the Earth. We see the same sky, and photography allows us to carry it wherever we go. It is a cartography of astrophotographs of skies and bodies of time travelers, black constellations, sky maps, archaeoastronomy studies, archaeological sites, petroglyphs, observatories, meteorites and volcanoes, in order to share ancestral worldviews and deepen the the same book read by all generations: the stars in the sky, at the same time as a study of light and shadow, writing and orality. The fieldwork in South America, as well as Andean and Mesoamerican archaeoastronomy studies, are in their 5th year.

The project was selected as a finalist for the creation grant of the Olot International Photography Festival (2022) and has the support of the Institute of Art and Science of the School of Art and Heritage of UNSAM.

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.
