For the residency at ´ace, Silvi developed ideas for artist books. The themes are exploring a personal narrative of identity that pendulates between Australia and Argentina. Silvi’s book pages began in Australia and were further developed during the ´ace residency with images from the La Puna region of North West Argentina. The artists books will be finished back in Australia. Silvi has been commissioned by the Victorian government to create a documentary series for forest and memorial fire recovery.

La Puna Argentina (by Silvi Glattauer)

Eternal and elusive, silent yet present, a landscape that offers extensive spaces, provides an opportunity to disconnect from the tangible and obvious visual elements one would associate with traditional landscape photography. The conceptual mind can drift and float in these never-ending shadowless planes and spaces, revealing clarity towards a personal identity.

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.
