During a micro-residency, Teresa Puig did a mapping of her every day walk from her lodging area to the ‘ace studio. In order to design a 3D map she is collecting information and pictures. Her work is based in a deep research on urbanism and the particularities of Buenos Aires.

Puig is interested in the representation of spaces, tracks and time, situations and experiences, both personal and general. The artist is also interested in topics such as presence and absence, life and decay, as well as the sense of the paths of time.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

“We live somewhere: in a country, in a town in that county, in a neighbourhood, in a building in that street, in an apartment in that building” Georges Perec.

According to Perec, we live in a place where we put our roots where we want to belong to. My work is related to how we perceive and we move on the space. Due to my nomad life, I have come across to many cities where I have to carve out the place in order to fit in.

At “Colegiales” neighbourhood, where ´ace is located, I felt like at home, somehow it was related to my childhood neighbourhood in Spain.

The project is composed of overlapping the two neighbourhood maps, with a symbiosis between them; I’m creating a new space, a new home.

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.
