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”.
