I was born in Posadas, Misiones. I am a graphic designer. Between 2001 and 2004 I was scholar of the Antorchas Foundation (Tulio, Claudia del Río, Bazán, Wells, Lebenglik, Valeria Gonzáles and Batkis). In 2003 I made a workshop with Horacio Zabala. Then I got the scholarship of the Visual Arts Program of the "Alto Paraná Project", coordinated by Ana Martínez Quijano and Jorge Gumier Maier. In 2008 I participated in Entrecampos, in the Rosario City and Resistencia City phases.
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.
Little doll, black satin ribbon, water, roses, red bowl. "Among Butterflies" [Entre mariposas] was created as a fleeting experiment, while preparing to mount another photo.
(A digression –?– that sought unity through aesthetic and conceptual fragments.
Like the images that followed, it alternates the wall –where it is projected with 0.60 m x 1.30 m approximately–, with the photographic paper in smaller format, according to its place of exhibition.)
Butterflies = Flying flowers, was the first example of a metaphor that I was given in primary school. "If it hasn’t metaphor, it isn’t art" said Luis Wells during a workshop in Antorchas Foundation. I remembered something of this during that nap, while I underlined my favorite phrase by Foucault: "Ultimately, life is what is capable of error; thereby comes its radical nature".
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
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?
Maybe my works are related to the trends of the ‘90s: "Although perhaps you didn’t even know them, it is the spirit of times", a dear friend of mine uses to say.
My references are varied and changing; someone who has stayed there has been Lygia Clark.
I am interested in Cindy Sherman, Gego, Pablo Siquier, Mariko Mori, Carlos Sorín and Alfred Hitchcock.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
