I was born in Buenos Aires in 1979, in the 8th month of pregnancy, and by cesarean section, because I had a foot already outside and the umbilical cord was around my neck.
My childhood was very nice, I spent it in the Kindergarten La Aldea, that was progressive and had a farm. The elementary school was in a state school in Saavedra Neighborhood; there I had a better perception of good and evil. The High School in the National School of Buenos Aires. I traveled every day by bus and one hour later I used to go to the River Plate Club to train and play volleyball. I played during 10 years as a professional; I earned my first salary at the age of 15. I saved money and spent it in travels.
I studied Design of Image and Sound in the UBA. I studied photography at the UBA, and then made a workshop with Guillermo Ueno. Since then I take pictures, and I show them when I dare to do it.
My first individual exhibition was called Holidays [Vacaciones] and it took place in the Torre Monumental. Exhibitions in Goethe Institut, Sonoridad Amarilla, Natural Sciences Museum, Belleza y Felicidad Gallery, Boquitas Pintadas Gallery, Million Gallery, Brandon House, MOTP Gallery (Mar del Plata), Elsi del Río Gallery, VVV Gallery, arteBA, Buenos Aires Photo, the first exhibition Curriculum Zero [Curriculum Cero] in Ruth Benzacar Gallery.
Thanks to the Cultural Fund in 2007 I did an exhibition in the Recoleta Cultural Center that was called Tiger [Tigre].
I work in film and advertising. I rest in a house that some friends and I rent in the delta of El Tigre.
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.
It is very difficult to make a choice. Today I choose that “The viewer” ["La miradora"]. Actually any photo has a title but that’s the way to identify it when I talk about it. I like it because it was taken during holidays in Córdoba province, and because my mom wears one of her classic models that characterize her. I like how it seems a continuous river made with a real river, a shirt and my mom’s varizes (she has very nice legs anyway, hey). I sent it to various contests, but the jurors never liked it. It seems it has no punch.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
I leave it to the taste of the viewer. It would be good to do it without prejudice, with time and with imagination.
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'm really out. I love to meet with my friends who produce very nice, interesting and inspiring things. Guille, Lola, Juli Gatto, Guilla, Andrés Lehmann, Aneta, Juani, Cabrera, Paulo, Nacho, Adrián Salgueiro, Fabián Cabral, Anita, Mary Grunstein. In the following galleries: Tosto, Canasta, Belleza y Felicidad, Brandon, in El Tigre. I am interested in: Xul Solar, Alfredo Prior, Alberto Goldenstein, Nan Goldin, Richard Billingham, Wolfgang Tillmans, Diane Arbus, Brassaï, Lucrecia Martel, Buñuel, the surrealists, David Lynch, Fellini, Michel Gondry, Anaïs Nin, Clarice Lispector, Marosa Di Giorgio, Aleister Crowley, Haruki Murakami, Proust, Hokusai, Yoshitomo Nara, Alexander McQueen, Issey Miyake, Ellioth Smith, Kings of Convenience, Feist, Elvis.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
