Sandra Ciccioli
#Frontera

22.02.21 15.03.21

Sandra Ciccioli is an architect and visual artist based in Argentina. She has been dedicated to Visual Arts and teaching for years with the same passion. In her artistic practice she is especially interested in the intersections between different disciplines and, in terms of teaching, she loves to transmit the enthusiasm to find in art a thought form and a world view. Sandra was Argentine representative in the IV Jerusalem Biennial, Israel with her work “Confrontación / Conversación”.

ARTIST´S STATEMENT

My work revolves around the idea of the human being integrated in a vital flow with nature, I transform them into a metaphor and reference. My process begins fortuitously from the path of water and ink on paper; this circumstance is what guides the final destination of the work.

The marks left by chance allow me to discover new territories or new geographies. The borders between drawing, painting, action and gesture are diluted and intermingled. They are the evidence of the blurred boundaries between material and gesture.

When I am working the feeling arises of collaborating with the unforeseen, of letting myself be guided by something that is beyond my calculation or my control, for that reason I usually start my task from washes, inks and drawings, which often lead to media. mixed, installation or, towards my current research with photography and video.

ABOUT FRONTIER

Participating in the Residency Program “Juntos a la distancia, Frontera” not only meant deepening the possibility of developing my interest in the intersections between disciplines, and in conceptual aspects of my artistic practice. It was also a possibility to open a very stimulating and enriching space for exchange and community thinking.

#4 | FRONTERA: results
Artistas en diálogo

15.03.21

Frontera was the theme that we took as the practical and conceptual framework for the fourth session of the new online program Together Apart. This site compiles the results of the cohort in Spanish that worked from February 22 to March 15, 2021 with 22 artists from Argentina, Aruba, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Spain, the United States, Mexico and Portugal.


Through 4 encounters we collectively and individually created ideas and artworks which explored a non-binary approach of the topic. The participant artists also had the possibility to dialogue with international artists invited to present their contributions and explorations in relation to the topic (Roberto Celis and Daniela Rivera). For this session we also gave priority to moments of peer review or collective feedback and to open discussions which drifted through issues of art and therapy, art and research, participatory art, the complexity of artistic collaboration and how collective practice appears to be a right to claim even more in moments of isolation.

Frontiers as geopolitical frontiers, as cultural, bio-political; frontiers as limits and as separations within the artistic disciplines, frontiers as hegemonic considerations of our bodies and identities.

Through different theoretical readings and artistic references, and through the proposals of each of the participant artists, we identified the importance of liminal states, the non-binary, we assumed the difficulty of inhabiting the in-between but also recognized that art practice is what allows us to live in ambiguous states and to constantly raise questions. We also explored other practices as breathing techniques, meditation and knowledge and skills sharing as methods to break through discriminative or isolating frontiers.

Through poetry, film, online performances, video art and the creation of a network for artists through the method of “participatory asset mapping”, the artists from this cohort created in search of commonalities in their migrant’s everyday experiences, resonances among the natural conditions of the places they live in, the links among their identities and psychological researches and in search of practical collaborations to continue working in the future.

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.
