#6 Future

02.06.21 30.06.21

Artist, engraver and printer born in Zárate, Bs. As. Province. She describes her profession as a second skin, and for many years has dedicated herself to teaching and trade practices. She is a Professor in charge of the Lithography research and experimentation workshop at the Ernesto de la Cárcova Museum. In 2011 Lorena was awarded the Tamarind Institute Scholarship of the University of New Mexico for specialization in lithography on aluminum. Then, in 2019, she was awarded a residency grant by the Kunstlerhaus foundation in Steindruck, Munich, Germany. Lorena currently co-directs AMA, a collaborative graphics studio for students and artists that is also a kind of international exchange forum intertwining and coordinating proposals from different workshops in Latin America.

ARTIST STATEMENT

The language of engraving and printed art is an infinite territory, I immerse myself in it and play, but I also investigate systematically with perseverance. Creating, teaching and functioning as a bridge define my work, in which the geography of the place I live appears—the banks of the Paraná de las Palmas, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

My work is mostly based on nature and reflects a bit the landscape of the city I live in, crossed by water and river. The idea of interior and exterior landscape, crossed by femininity and translated into lines through the use of woodcut and lithography.

ABOUT #FUTURE

As a participant in future, my horizon was broadened to collaborative thinking that allowed me to explore other printable media such as the use of biopolymers. This exploration enabled me to think about my work in relation to its materiality.

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.
