Artist Mia Pearlman performs Site Specific Installations using cut paper as the sole material.

During his residency at Proyecto´ace Pearlman developed for the first time -with the help of Argentine industrial designers and the´ace team- a digital prototype for laser cutting with which he subsequently made an edition of medium-sized sculptures.

She also worked in the workshop of ´ace in a series of impressions using the monotype technique which he later continued to work making by hand for the construction of his scrolls.

At the end of his residency, the digital prototype was brought to the United States, where he made an edition of the multiple of 200 copies which were sold at the Museum of Art & Design in New York, together with the exhibition Slash: Paper under the Knife, in which Mia was one of the invited artists.
The exhibition was curated by David Revere McFadden and was open from October 7, 2009 to April 4, 2010.


” I make site-specific cut paper installations, ephemeral drawings that inhabit space in both two and three dimensions. I first make complex line drawings on large rolls of paper in India ink. Then I cut out selected areas to create a new drawing, made of positive and negative space, on the reverse. Pinned into a sculptural form, these forms create a drawing in space. And finally, their shadows produce a wholly new drawing on and around the three dimensional drawing”.

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.
