Simon Moore
Time and movement

09.12.13 20.12.13

During his residency at ´ace, Simon Moore wanted to document the temporality of the moving line of drawing and photography; wondering about the perception of time (memory / history) and how to do it with communication methods (recorded vs. digital). Therefore, he presented and exhibited the engravings as a sculptural installation and as a creation of urban art in public spaces.

ARTIST STATEMENT
I use the printing process with materials and techniques through which I explore experimentation and play. The curious drawing for me always comes first, and engraving is the tool with which I interrogate its mysteries. I finish by going down to the drawing to its most basic elements, I repeat lines to build and create the form that evokes space and depth in two dimensions, which can also disappear. This presence / absence refers to memory: its ability to bring order out of chaos, its ability to stretch and contract time, it always strives to give meaning. During my residency at ´ace I plan to create a series of engravings that are based on my recent experiments with relief / monotype, collage and urban art processes that are a continuation of my Final Thesis for the Movement memory = space-time master’s degree.

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.
