I was born in Buenos Aires on May 9, 1985. I went to many artists workshops, including that of Nicola Constantino; also studied photography with several photographers (Inés Miguenz and Ángela Copello, Daniel Tubío and Diego Ortiz Mugica) and now I’m studying architecture at the University of Buenos Aires. In August of 2008 I made my first exhibition in the Ernesto Catena Gallery of Contemporary Photograph.
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.
The work is untitled. It is a photograph taken in Kuala Lumpur, walking in a very hot day. All my photos are direct takes, and they are precise and certain moments in which I cannot contain myself and I have to take that photo. I don’t set up the takes, I seek for them. These are moments in which I see situations, moments and places that represent the way I feel and see things.
I try to register the consequences of (usually human) actions that accumulate over time. With regard to technology there is not much to say, it is basic photography: light and time, the only thing that changes is the technology: analog or digital.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
Everyone is free to read my work the way they want.
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?
Music is a big influence. Radiohead above all. Matthew Barney and Björk, Beck, Sigur Ros, Damien Hirst, Joseph Beuys, Rem Koolhaas, Jeff Wall, Bernd and Hilla Becher, James Porter, Juan Travnik, Nicola Constantino, Hiroshi Sugimoto, the film Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring by Kim Ki-Duk, Spinetta, Christo and Jeanne-Claude (the Land Art), Gabriel Orozco. The colors (especially orange).
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
Alberto Goldenstein in Ruth Benzacar Gallery in 2008. Because I didn’t know him and It was a pleasure to meet him.
