OPEN Buenos Aires 2023 residency scholarship award


Zerré is an artist from Venezuela who works at the intersection between multimedia art and post-digital art. On this occasion, their residency was the result of the prize they won at the OPEN Buenos Aires—Encuentro internacional de gráfica emergente, II edition. For their participation in OPEN Buenos Aires, the artist used augmented reality techniques and built a mural installation with which the public could interact. As part of their scholarship, Zerré was able to work with the assistance of our technical coordinator in our workshop, where they materialised through photolithography part of their series of portraits generated with Artificial Intelligence.

Through their work, Zerré seeks to propose an experience that challenges the limits of perception by generating landscapes of the unconscious that trace a crossover between reality and fiction, where they reflect on the way we interact with the digital environment and how this influences our perception of reality. Their aim is to create a dialogue between the viewer and the work, inviting them to explore new narratives and to question the boundaries between the virtual and the real.

Echoes of Existence: Artistic Reflections on Humanity, Nature, and Identity

In the last ‘ aceNITE of 2023 we are honored to present the diverse and compelling works of four talented artists: ARKO/Korean residency fellows Jungsuh Sue Lim and Hana Yoo, Open Buenos Aires Prize & Residence scholarship Zerre (Venezuela) and artist in residence Greg Zurita (USA). Each artist brings a unique perspective and artistic approach, collectively engaging with themes ranging from loss and mortality to architectural abstraction, reflections on identity, and the evolving relationship between humanity and artificial intelligence.

Yoo’s work offers a powerful commentary on environmental activism, indigenous rights, and the enduring bond between humanity and nature. Through the narrative of Tanu, a mystical being navigating landscapes threatened by extractivism, YOO confronts urgent ecological concerns while honoring the resilience of indigenous communities and their fight for environmental justice.

Lim’s poignant exploration of loss and mortality resonates deeply, drawing from personal experiences to confront the complexities of farewells and the emotions that accompany them. Through her immersive installation performance “Here and There, Together,” Lim invites viewers to participate in a reinterpreted ceremony for beloved souls, encouraging collective reflection and connection.

Zerre’s thought-provoking series, “Metahumans,” challenges conventional notions of identity and reality in the digital age. Through graphic prints on unconventional supports and the use of photolithography techniques, Zerre blurs the boundaries between human and artificial intelligence, inviting viewers to question the nature of perception and existence in an increasingly technologically mediated world

Zurita’s minimalist yet evocative artworks offer a contemplative exploration of architectural form and texture. Using earth-toned palettes and a structural approach to geometric abstraction, Zurita invites viewers to engage with the subtle nuances of everyday life, encouraging personal interpretations and new perspectives on the world around us.

Together, these four artists offer a rich tapestry of perspectives, inviting viewers to contemplate the complexities of the human experience, the environment, and the intersections between art, technology, and identity.

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.
