Claudio Alejandro Docampo
Technical school and public university. Other indirect formation through the walls (I attended a M.A. in architecture in an art school where I shared the studio with a painter. Workshops with F. Burgos, A. Herrero, H. Marina, M. dC. Colombo, psi training in school founded by Masotta; did some exhibitions. The controversial concept known as “private life”, explains many of the things I make: a special curiosity for the further-professional senses owned by the projectable or projective: meeting, collision, association, influence – The way things get or stay together (or people); how can an object or action (building, picture, poem) shader or blind another; how a line, so similar to another (or figure similar to background) may change the sense of a drawing –though some think that lines impose spirit to the material, when it is harder, sharper or more elastic imposing to another one… Finally, how something so trivial can become so rare: the fetish-life of a car, pack or tool we have at hand: I think it would be the same mental map of the one buying a toy in the sex-shop than the one buying a deodorant in the supermarket. With the same ideas I teach, or write occasionally.
