Paz Sepúlveda is a Chilean artist with extensive training and work in the most diverse fields—some linked to art, others very distant but not unrelated to her practice. An Execution Engineer in Environmental Management, an Advertising Technician and a Bachelor of Visual Arts, Paz studied oil and pastel painting at the National Association of Fine Arts, she is the Founder and Director of Ecoasociarte NGO, and she also founded the MUA International group to promote the female art.

At the beginning of October 2022, we received Paz in our workshop for an extended Production micro-Residency, in which the artist was able to have time to dedicate herself exclusively to her artistic production, researching and creating a body of work inspired by the social stratigraphy that dialogues against an inertia/time of human inequalities. In her pieces, Paz used the module to show the breaks, the interruptions, and to reconnect the story of geological strata that are shown in a constant, as a base that leads and correlates the whole, but where interruptions and scars also appear as part of the sedimentation process.

Her current work is influenced both by environmental aspects and social aspects. The artist is interested in a constructive criticism of issues such as education, the value of women, or constructive collapse, navigating between the figurative and the abstract in a constant struggle between the observation of detail and the denial of it. Paz is interested in experimenting with materiality and also in using different techniques with its mixtures, which facilitate an artistic narrative that proposes dialogues and reflections on the relationships between nature and society. The use of the module in her work has been a success in these moments of struggle, with whose format she has achieved an imprint that reflects on the interruption and continuity between social and ecosystem struggles.

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.
