Touching Gravity

29.01.18 01.06.18

Recently awarded with the Order of Merit of the Canadian government and Emeritus Professor of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, Liz integrated the ´ace team in the double role of resident artist and artistic director, the latter during the absence of Alicia Candiani, Founding director of Proyecto´ace who has been named International Randall Chair of Expanded Media at NYSCC, Alfred University in the State of New York in the USA.

ARTISTIC VISION
The human body and the elemental in nature are recurring sources for Ingram’s art practice, which investigates transitional states between material presence and the ephemeral, and issues relating to the fragility of life and the environment. In an attempt to reawaken an understanding of our fundamental connections with nature, she is currently using images of glistening water and the human body, focusing on a specific lake site in the Alberta boreal forest. With the aid of the printed image, paper and ink, glass, light, shimmering pixels and fabric, she wishes to give the viewer an experience that will tap childhood memories of the sensation of playing in water, and will celebrate the wonder of this endangered and essential substance. Her work represents an attempt to re-awaken our fundamental connections and our oneness with nature, and our awareness of the elemental aspect of water to all life forms.

Touching Gravity
Liz Ingram

30.05.18 22.06.18

A breath and the sound of water is what first touches our ears and our whole body, a tent that seems to have bodies in a state of enjoyment or suffering, bodies that are caressed or dragged with a golden silk, but we look up and it would seem to be a waterfall that solidifies as it approaches us, and we can enter the tent, search those bodies, but they are not there. In motion, that tent seems to be floating in the water, seems to swim like an anemone, breathes…

Touching Gravity is an installation that included digital prints, a photolithography portfolio, a silk tent, poetry at the level of our feet and photographs where touch, light, organic and inorganic are protagonists without eclipsing each other. A collaboration between Liz Ingram and Bernd Hildebrandt who, while they lived in Buenos Aires for 4 months, toured the city and created from the reflection on their bodies in relation to that city. A project that talks about the perception of oneself in relation to the other, about care, life and death.

Excerpts from the poetry of Touching Gravity
what voice is there between a hand and its fingers / what mitigates an elemental and fugitive breach / what places pressure within an oyster’s realm / what pinches shadows, tempting age not to forget / what seizes upon voices still listening to scars / what speculates upon every circumcision of a finger tip / what listens between lips and tongues / what tempts the land with rain / gravity dissolves light into sand / gravity wakes every new moon / gravity picks pendant fruit / gravity speaks through the silence of touch.

´aceNITE

Gravitation
Liz Ingram

30.05.18

On May 30th 2018, we presented an ´aceNITE of transitions, farewells and welcomes, projects in process, projects on cycles and vital processes.

Liz Ingram, from Canada, a very special artist in residence who created in our residence for 4 months, presented the project she did in collaboration with the artist and her husband, Bernd Hildebrant, Touching Gravity.

[Blank Space] is a new residency format that we have been developing since 2017 and where artists from different contexts and disciplines work on projects in the same space, fostering synergy. The artists of [Blank Space] 3, Regina Calcaterra (CABA), Sol Rodríguez Díaz (Tucumán) and Elsa Nievas (Necochea) presented the projects they developed during the time at ´ace.

Emerging from the call for projects of artists from or living in Argentina, we presented Thorns also Grow in the Silence, by Florencia Nieto. Simultaneously, we invited Ezequiel Montero Swinnen, who showed photographs of his series Viento.

In addition, we welcomed Alicia Candiani, founder and current director of Proyecto´ace, who from January to May 2018 had been invited as an artist and professor in residence in the Division of Expanded Media, School of Art and Design at Alfred University, New York, USA

Open Studio

Open Studio #01_2018
Artists in Dialog

21.02.18

On Wednesday February 21st, 2018 we shared the first Open Studio of the year, in which the artists in residence Akiko Keira and Liz Ingram presented their projects for colleagues and participants of the artistic circuit of Buenos Aires.

After 4 weeks of residence, the Japanese artist Akiko Keira presented her project To Reduce the Distance almost in a performative way, through which she proposed to present in Buenos Aires images and objects that she brought from Japan and Finland, a country in which she made a residency some months before. Akiko created an atmosphere of immersion that, through its Zen rhythm, forces viewers to practice the necessary patience before encountering difference, thereby distinguishing it from our daily rhythm.

Liz Ingram, on her part, gave a talk in which she told about her training, her time as a professor at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada and presented different projects that she has carried out. In addition, she shared her projections for her time in Buenos Aires, since Liz did a 5-month residency that included the temporary artistic direction of Proyecto´ace.

Encounters, Together Apart

Liz Ingram & Bernd Hildebrandt
Guest speakers

24.02.21

“The differences between societies, nations and cultures is based upon a seemingly unproblematic division of space, on the fact that they occupy “naturally” spaces which are limited and fragmented. The representation of the world as a collection of countries, as in the most world maps, see it as a fragmented space, divided by different colors in diverse national societies, each rooted in its proper place, is an example of this.

In addition it is also taken for granted that each community embodies its own distinctive culture.Representations of space in the world are remarkably dependent on images of break, rupture and disjunction which need limits, borderlines …frontiers bringing us to deal with issues of space and place, along with some related concerns such as location, displacement, community and identity.

Today we have the honor to be with us two guest speakers who have navigated in their lives and in their art through different territories, rather than crossing borders, building bridges between them. During these years, their work together has been very productive and has resulted in numerous large scale installations utilizing fabric, paper and structures nationally and internationally.”

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.
