Teresita Jimenez
Divine Presence

05.03.18 28.03.18

Teresita Jiménez is an artist whose work involves geometric compositions from photographs of different textures of nature that she takes. Contemplation, as an encounter and as meditation, is an important part of her process, an aspect that can be clearly observed in her precious compositions. During the residency at ´ace she has acquired the photolithographic technique, which allowed her to intervene and add new layers, depths and presences to the photos, new encounters with nature.

ARTIST STATEMENT
Walter Benjamin says that “photography allows us to see and understand more of the world around us”. The camera is used as a tool to observe, select and capture images of elements of nature, trying not only to capture the visible qualities manifested in it, such as the theme of color and texture –two contents that will be important in the composition of the work–, but also seeks to cover the theme of Nature as an element worthy of contemplation. Nature understood as Divine Creation, work of God. On the other hand, the concept of perception enters the game through a visual effect, where an invitation to meditation is made through the recognition, interpretation and meaning that is carried out from the observation of an image created with elements of the natural world.

Reflections
Artists in Dialog

21.03.18

Reflejos was an event that combined the opening of the exhibition Divina Presencia by artist in residence Teresita Jiménez (Chile) and the Open Studios of Dolores Delia (Arg.), Esperanza Grez (Chile) and artists from the collective residency [Espacio en Blanco] 2.

As it usually happens in each residence period, ties and coincidences were generated beyond what we expected. The three artists in residence developed artwork in the photolithographic technique for the first time and the interests behind their work had many correlations, as the route of the Cordillera de los Andes, the contact between Argentina and Chile and the connection of man and nature as well as the connection human-city.

The artists in [Espacio en Blanco]2 worked on individual projects but we could say that the reflection about the routes through the city, the ways of recording the paths, the memory and inheritance was given at a general level. They worked in varied media, from artist’s book, intervention with illustration in the house of ´ace, photography, performance, video, sound art, installation and textile art.

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.
