I was born in Rosario in 1977. I live and work in Buenos Aires. I attended Diana Aizenberg’s artist’s studio and I did an art workshop of Gumier Maier’s artwork. I participated in several collective exhibitions, and I presented very few times my work individually. In 2000 I was part of the scholarship that consisted of analysing TRAMA’s artwork; in 2004 I obtained a scholarship provided by the National Fund for the Arts (Buenos Aires); and in 2005 I obtained another one, this time provided by the Government of the city of Buenos Aires.
Vision of art
1. Choose a work that represents you, describe it in relation to its format and materiality, its relation with time and space, its style and theme; detail its production process.
“Mi corazón no es todo lo que yo quisiera” (My heart is not everything I wanted) is a text that belongs to the series of signs. I don’t have much to describe it. It is written in pottery. Each word is a spare part that sum up to make a sentence. I like spare words as objects. As if you we able to grab one and take it in your pocket.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
I don’t have any suggestion as to how you must see my work. I like the unexpected way of seeing things, when somebody finds something that comes out of the blue. It sometimes happens when you are seeing a big exhibition and, suddenly, you come across with a wonderful artwork who knows from whom… I love that, those encounters. It’s a non-intellectual, relaxed, humorous way of seeing things… that comes with a surprise.
3. In reference to your work and your position in the national and international art fields, what tradition do you recognize yourself in? Who are your contemporary referents? What artists of previous generations are of interest to you?
I don’t see myself as part of a specific artistic tradition. There are always artists with whom you relate and feel like a close relative, or in which you can find things in common. There are places of productions in which you find yourself with artworks made by others. I like very much Louise Bourgeois, how many faces have her work has, her personal mark, her drawings and writing; Félix Gonzáles-Torres, the way he works with his intimacy; Remedios Varo’s universe; Leonilson, Feliciano Centurión, Adriane Gallinari…
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
The Roberto Aizenberg’s Retrospective presented in the Cronopios Hall at the Recoleta Cultural Center (Buenos Aires). He later presented an exhibition in Ruth Benzacar Gallery (Biuenos Aires). Grippo presented in MALBA (Buenos Aires). The exhibition of Gurmier Mayer in Braga Menéndez Gallery (Buenos Aires), held last year; Historias Asombrosas of Sebastián Gordín in Ruth Benzacar Gallery (Buenos Aires). An exhibition of Fabián Burgos held in the big hall of the Recoleta Cultural Center, Buenos Aires (it was about his favourite images). The hall was surrounded by a line made with his photographs. I loved it.
