Jenie Gao
The Story Line

26.01.15 13.02.15

Jenie Gao will develop a suite of prints and artist books that tell stories of people who dare to make things.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work centers on stories of objects and symbols that people assign meaning to, as anchor points in our identities as we continue to change and grow. I am fascinated with the history of why we make things. With modern business, it’s easy to forget that the things we manufacture have their roots in an art form.

So my next body of work will be a suite of prints and artist books that tell the story of people who dare to make things, who add beauty to a world that will always be bigger than any of us can observe, experience, or understand. This is the project I am embarking on, and it only makes sense that the suite should tell the stories across many places as it grows.

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.
