Huilén Richeri is a Social Communicator, photographer and tattoo artist/illustrator. She studied Social Communication at the UBA (with orientation in Policies and Planning), Photography at Motivarte and worked in press, marketing, communication and social networking. After living in Barcelona for a year, through a Sociology exchange with the Autonomous University of Barcelona, due to the pandemic she had to return to Buenos Aires and was forced by the confinement to deepen the process of self-observation that she had started years before, but to which she had never given the main focus. This is how her re-connection with illustration arose and her new project was born: Intervened Roll, an exercise of observation, reflection and questioning of the place that Huilén occupies in the physical and social space that surrounds her. A series of illustrated photographs and collages that deliberately seek to define her experience in the world through the transparency of everyday life.
Intervened Roll is a social, personal and inevitably political look at the daily life of the artist and the world that surrounds her, and that, without wanting to want it, shaped her as a daughter of the ’90s. To do this, Huilén used photographs of her day to day, trying to find the extraordinary within an average life, photographs that later became illustrations, which, in turn, become mediated and intervened moments of her journey through this world.

Artists in Dialogue
On Wednesday, March 23, 2022, we hosted Cohabiting Memories, our first ´aceNITE of the year and the first since the pandemic began. During this meeting, we had several simultaneous activities that complemented and strengthened each other. On the one hand, the Sala Políglota received the international project The World IS/IN a Handkerchief, a traveling exhibition curated by Claudia DeMonte and Cecilia Mandrile that traces chance encounters, moments of discovery and personal connections in distant places or unexpected contexts, being even At the time, a total of 121 works printed in different graphic techniques on cotton handkerchiefs—on this occasion, the genealogy of Proyecto´ace was also presented, curated by Alicia Candiani.
To this, the presentations of our artists-in-residency were added. Chris Knollmeyer (USA) presented and performed live for the audience a piece of music specially composed and designed to accompany the installation of the handkerchiefs in the Políglota Room. For 4 weeks, Chris composed original fragments with a generative software created by him, using sounds of musical instruments and ambient recordings taken from the City of Buenos Aires and his surroundings during his stay. In addition, Ioulia Akhmadeeva (Russia-Mexico) showed part of the results obtained during her Production Residency in our workshop, sharing with the public an artist’s book and different editions in which she was working on the themes of memory and the war situation. in which his native country is located under the title Stop War / Net Voyne!. Wesley Ericson (USA) opened for the public his site-specific installation Something familiar in our courtyard, where he made a wall painting that takes one of our hanging plants and incorporates it into a classic motif from art history: the figure of Perseus holding the decapitated head of Medusa. In addition, Wesley installed a mirror so that those who dared to contemplate his work would not be paralyzed by the gaze of Medusa.
Also, we share with the public the results obtained by the cohort of COHABITAR FRONTERAS, the seventh edition of our online program Together Apart. On this occasion, with the support of the Metropolitan Fund for the Arts, 20 fellows worked collectively to discover possible ways of jointly inhabiting indeterminate spaces within their artistic practices, creating new bodies of work and thinking about questions about the intersection of disciplines both within the art as outside of it.
