During her residency in ´ace, de Vries investigates various graphic and printing techniques; aquatint to silk combined with monotypes and chine collé.

Marijke for her training, also linked to the world of dance and choreography, plans to make a small series on paper to reflect in her work, another of her passions that has brought her closer to Argentina, Tango.


A transformation, like Odysseus, often occurs when one is away from home, as I did in my own Odyssee having traveled to Buenos Aires sixteen times. Working mainly with dance / choreography, I discovered different layers of reality in the city, reflecting worlds within. My adventures and experiences led me to reflect, shaping the theme of this project. The way in which the “layers” of external reality are reflected in the soul create tension, leading to stories that ask for translation into “visual poetry”.

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.
