I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November 29th, 1977. I graduated from Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredón. I frequented the workshops of Enio Iommi, Jorge Lopez Anaya and Jorge Macchi. In 2002 I emigrated to Italy, first I was in Milan and after a few months I went to Venice for a weekend. During the holidays I descended a stair to the water in order to wash some paintbrushes. There was a lot of green on the stairs and inevitably I fell into the water of the putrid "canale". Some time later I learned the legend that says whomever bathes in a Venetian "canales" will never abandon the island. I don't not know if the legend is true but instead of the weekend I stayed several days and then finally returned to Milan only for my suitcases . So I've lived in Venice for 8 years.
Contemporaneously, thanks to the cyber intervention of "celestino", Cristian Estrella, also knows as Gato de Quilmes, I found a twin soul: Sebastián Zabronski, who lived in Tel Aviv by then. Among the mail we exchanged, he wrote the following phrase which hopelessly enamored me: "Here goes a hug that's going to protect you a little." this phrase unlocked face out for a date by my side. We spent 2003 going and coming from Venice to Tel Aviv. In 2004 Sebastián moved to Venice.
I can tell many other adventures, but this would take too long so I conclude by relating that in 2005 I was selected in curriculum 0. The same year decided to work together with Sebastián, so we founded conceptinprogress, that in 2006 obtained the fellowship from the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation and in 2007 we were artists in residence at the mentioned foundation.
In 2011 we move to Berlin.

200 Allegorys (selection) (2008)
Work of conceptinprogress, Amparo Ferrari and Sebastián Zabronski.
Two hundred diverse allegories based on the musical theme of the work Rondò: a rain of kisses.
On occasion of the group show A4 / 8 Studies that presented an artist book in the shape of A4 case that, transformed into a traveling gallery, the spectator can visit any time he likes: by simply opening the various compartments and discovering the individual works of each artist.
Distributed inside each one of the 200 artists books, conceptinprogress produced two hundred diverse allegories based on the musical theme of the work Rondò: a rain of kisses. The allegories, varied drawings and watercolors, from traditional collage to digital compositions and web-trouvé images.
The rizomatic thought applied to develop the variations of techniques, language and conceptual levels can be represented to traverse a three-dimensional image: concentric waves in expansion, whereby the allegories further from the center return more symbolic and abstract, transected by a spiral that maintains a link to all allegories with their origin.
Work of conceptinprogress, Amparo Ferrari and Sebastián Zabronski. Sound installation in "A4/8 Estudios", Manifesta 7. European Biennieal. Parallel events. The sound composition Rondò presents a musical episode or theme that is maintained and fixed, with alternating contrasts presented in diverse tonalities and of a different character from that of base, to compose a complete, circular structure. All the sound composition was composed by the multiplication and superimposition of kisses. A rain of kisses is the musical theme of the rondò.

It has always been there -25 installations in 25 days- (2007)
Work of conceptinprogress, Amparo Ferrari and Sebastian Zabronski.
Installation in Fundación Bevilacqua La Masa. Palazzetto Tito.
The work lasted for 25 days, changing every day, mutating sense and signs, giving place to a true life cycle that takes on an emotional scheme, that of the seasons of the year, like a woven set of active symbols. Installation of quotidian objects that perform the space, dissociated from any naturalism, they take form with time. Like frames that record conflicts and births of new situations, these installations superimpose themselves and proceed, transforming into testimonials of life, which is also the shadow of the process of creation of a work. This double meaning is fundamental to attend to more than once during the evolution of the work and is present the day of its denouement, the last, as if it were the starting point, the first day.
