Natalia Pilo-Pais

06.01.13 27.01.13

Within the exploration residency program, we received the Peruvian artist Natalia Pilo-Pais Figallo who developed her photographic work immersing herself in the city of Buenos Aires. Natalia went to meet spaces that were denied, forgotten, ignored but that finally say a lot about those who inhabit them or indirectly transit them, becoming a testimony of contemporary urban life.

The De-construction project is part of a research process, which is developed in Peru, Medellín and now in Buenos Aires, as a sample of a contemporary reality, which is the affirmation and denial of the environment in which we live, reflecting vertical growth of the cities while the city dweller affirms and denies these spaces that are formed not only by the passage of individual time but also by a group that is accustomed to horizontal gaze, and that is already alien to said constructions, manifesting an “intimacy of space”.

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.
