Interrupted poetry

07.01.13 25.01.13

Chilean emerging artist Isabel Rosemblatt comes to ´ace with a proposal that investigates the interpersonal connections of social networks as well as seeks interaction with viewers. In the three weeks of her residency, Isabel toured the city making posts on Twitter. The artist’s tweets (short thoughts expressed in 140 characters) become quasi haikus in her aesthetic discourse (with deep poetic and reflective content on the daily life of the city of Buenos Aires), in reflections of flaneur and philosopher at the same time, that -although written- awaken us an infinity of visual images.

The project that I want to carry out during the residency entitled Interrupted Poetry seeks to occupy the medium of social networks to bring art to the ordinary user, who can access from anywhere with an Internet connection to be part of the work and at the same time bring social networks to the art space, inviting the viewer who comes to the gallery to take the work with them.

My intention is to be able to direct this project to an extreme with the residence to be able to spend all day writing and looking for stories and images of the place to be able to describe them poetically. I would like to have the time to observe myself around, to be able to feel it, to observe people and their interactions with their environment and with others. It seems to me that today and with the speed at which everything moves, the taste for simple observation and in turn for reading has been largely lost.
I also seek in my work that the works can in a certain way interact with the viewer, in this case the viewer will be able to interact with the site that is shown where the live twitter texts appear, allowing them to access previous texts or being able to update what is reading. This also highlights the instantaneous nature of the networks in which the user can read while I am writing and moving around the city, being able to follow the route I take in a certain way.

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.
