ARTIST´S STATEMENT

My concern and creative interest is focused on memory and identity as a common thread. Starting from the individual and autobiographical towards the collective, addressing issues such as emotional fractures, fragility, abuse, loneliness or forgetfulness. The trace of time and its mark.

I am particularly interested in how experiences affect us: what happens to us when we remember? How is our own identity transformed after the memory of a negative and painful experience? And that we have forgotten but have left a mark on our way to see and perceive the world?

I approach these and other issues in a multidisciplinary way; combining painting, photography, sculpture, assembly, texts, textiles, everyday objects or materials found through reconstruction / modification to generate reflections on human fragility and the importance of art as a medium. For social transformation. My projects go through memory, trauma and repair.

In my work there is a conceptual coherence, all the projects are connected, they nourish each other, although aesthetically they differ between them. In them lies the greatness of creation. In the constant search and experimentation of different languages and the freedom for change.

Through the different supports, materials and techniques I search, modify and reconstruct new identities; all this as transit processes. Creation as a way of inhabiting the world in other possible ways.

ABOUT FRONTIER

This program has allowed me to meet artists from different disciplines, get closer to their work processes and create a place for various voices to reflect. Different ways of doing, seeing, feeling, thinking. Remember the important and necessary of sharing a space, physical or virtual, where we can exchange our experiences and ideas around creation and generate new points of view that can only enrich us.

Together apart helped me to eliminate the pressure of having to do a final work to focus on the process, enjoy it and the conversations generated in the working groups. As well as experimenting with new languages and media, such as video-performance in my case.

I started the residency focusing on geopolitical borders to progressively reach the borders and mental blocks that we consciously or unconsciously impose on ourselves.
My proposals are understood as rites of passage in an attempt to go through them. Life as a constant crossing of thresholds and the body as a connecting element in all of them. Without a doubt an enriching experience,  I hope to repeat again.

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.
