Invisible Cartographies

13.01.14 22.01.14

Patricia´s idea is to document the late nineteenth century architectural memory of Buenos Aires through her artistic expressions. Previously, Patricia made ​​several short films, including Retratos de Abuela Ana (2008), Yo, rail (2008) and La  Inventariante (2010) which won the FIVA International Video Art Festival prize in Buenos Aires.


Through photography and a video-documentary, the project Invisible Cartographies has developed a mapping of late XIXth and early XXth century buildings from the city of Buenos Aires. The artist has produced a photographic series from the buildings of 2.450 pictures.

The documentary movie entitled Dale was developed during her pathways through the city in which the artist and movie maker talked with Buenos Aires residents, asking about their memories in and about the city. Within a train journey, the music and architecture, we can see a variety of the city’s characters.

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.
