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.
My pieces have no title. I can describe it, It’s an embroidery I made some years ago of an animal with black threads and black beads. It is an embroidered canvass framed with a wood of about 20 x 28 cm. I can’t detail the production process of this work because it’s minor. I can say it represents me because every time I see it I still believe it is the synthesis of what I always wanted to do. It has no relation with time or space. It’s absolutely simple, synthetic and it produces something deep and strong in me, that is why I love it and I choose it.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
Initially, I wouldn’t make any suggestion, I believe each person has the right to choose what is that that catches his o hers attention enough to really introduce in the piece of art. Of course, I think that in my case, as in any other, the ideal is not to see separate works, but to follow a route, trying to put yourself in the other’s place and find what is happening to the other person with this. In my particular case, I always thought that my production need certain will by the spectator, and a little dedication since it could be easily tagged as superficial.
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 can say that the artists that have impact me trough my artistic career, and that have definitely have a strong impact on my work are: Alfredo Londaibere, Marcelo Pombo, Ariadna Pastorini, Jorge Gumier Maier and, of course, many of the art masters in the international history that don’t need to be mentioned. From future generations I still don’t dare talk, and from past generations just to mention some artists, I’d have to say Raquel Forner, Grete Stern, Marcia Schwartz… From my contemporaries I feel in this moment, very related to Juana Neuman, Silvina Sícoli, Fernanda Laguna, María Guerrieri’s work and, in poetry, with Noelia Rivero.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
Recently, I was shocked by Ariadna Pastorini’s exhibition at Braga Menéndez gallery(Buenos Aires, Argentina) in 2006. Broadly, Alfredo Londaibere’s shows in the last years have really touched me, they are the ones that impact me the most, I could mention The Bibliotheque(2005), the one in the San Martin Cultural Center (2005), one a long time ago called Power Crowns [Coronas de poder] at French Alliance. Gumier Maier’s exposition at Braga Menéndez gallery in 2005 was beautiful to me, strong and delicate. Some separate Guillermo Ueno and Nacho Isparra’s photos move me a lot, but I can’t say precisly which ones, I think they are photographers that, every now and then, create something beyond explanations. And there was one last work by Juana Nauman y Peripheral (2005), a series of pictures where she draw on the sticker papers and I find that so close to me and so cool. I would like to mention as well the later works in general of Marcelo Pombo, for which I have almost no words. In general Londaibere, Pastorini, Pombo, Gumier Maier’s pieces of art interest me a lot, because these are artists that, without losing their essence, definite and unique, every time I go to a new exhibition, I find something new, evolution, growth, new concepts.
