Lucio Gorzalczany is an Argentinian artist who lives and works in Buenos Aires. He is a student of Interior Design at the Universidad del Litoral who currently works in photography, paper, installation and painting. He seeks to explore through new means within spatiality, and starting from matter, a choral narrative based on a fragment in time and the sensitive habitat.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
From my artistic practice I seek to explore a variety of techniques, supports and elements applied to a small amount of materials, be they pictorial or extra-artistic. The meaning that drives this drift lies in the ramification of results from an unstable and uncertain system. Reformulating those visual aspects and linking them within a sensitive cartography. An unstable blog that feeds on itself, building connections inside and outside of a coded fiction driven by variables in the perception of shapes, space, light and the memory of space.
Within the Together Apart: #FUTURE program I had the wonderful opportunity to share and learn about new ideas and concepts that currently challenge us collectively. It was very enriching to see and hear artists from all over the world sharing their experiences about the future and how it affects the production of our artistic practice. Personally, this was a program where aspects of my work were expanded to continue with the research, enlarge the network of connections at the international level and continue to strengthen the relationship with ´ace and its programming.

#6 | FUTURE: results
Artists in dialogue
“We must begin to educate ourselves, no longer in the critical exercise, but in the propositional abundance of ideas and worlds. That is the now of tomorrow ” CHUS MARTÍNEZ
#FUTURE (English cohort) was a new session of Together Apart through which we embarked into different considerations and proposals about and for the future. Taking as a framework artistic and conceptual references in relation to utopian and situated futures, the international cohort of artists worked individually and in collaboration, addressing the main theme through artistic practice, collective discussions and conceptual frameworks. This was a specially interesting cohort in regards to the articulation of disciplines and technologies. The working proposals were approached by creations that included printmaking to new media arts, textile arts and sustainable practices, including architecture and design. To mention only a few of the statements that the artists proposed, future was addressed as the negative space that implies how a form might move into it, future is the feeling of anticipation, future is the will to get back cancelled desires, future is transformation, future is restoration, future is expanding the present, future is a wheel spinning in its axis…
Transformation as a process to evoke the future was central in the work of many artists: transformation of materials (reuse, recycle, repetition, erasure), transformation of subjectivities (due to personal will or to external experiences) including gender transformation and approaches to transformations in our brain and body structures.
What other temporalities does the nature offer? Artists approached nature as the main master to explore life cycles, continuities of transformation and an endless source of wonder.
Nature and culture, considered in an imbricate dialogue and not as separate, allowed us to think in different timelines. Artists chose to work in collaboration with nature, from creating working materials from natural resources, as producing paper with plants, using poisonous leaves for an artistic gesture or exposing the artwork to outside atmospheric conditions for long periods of time.
The future of our artistic practices were also considered from proposals which would only unravel in the future or by creating a testament for the future distribution of artwork, even through taking care of the waste that art produces.
On July 14th we will make a public online presentation of all the collaborations which were initiated through this online programme and we will continue exploring through the practice such challenging and fundamental questions related to the future.
