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.
Up to date, I would say that a work that represents me is "Camouflage" (Appetite Gallery, October 2007 to February 2008). It was an intervention in the backyard of the place from where you could see a neighbor's tree. With this view and having in mind my previous works, I decided to fill that space with artificial leaves so that when entering the viewer would be surrounded and crossed by the nature; giving a feeling of invasive nature, giving that sense of “something that has always been there”, of abandon, ruins, but also a triumph of nature over man's creation. Since it was exhibited for more than three months in which natural and artificial lighting created momentary changes related to the hours of the day and the weather conditions, the climate became central to this work. Other artists who exhibited at the gallery throughout this period also modified the work. The idea was to saturate the space with the foliage so that the audience would feel inside the tree, or rather, gone through it.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
I think my works, so far, should be read as individual experimental series of larger projects. Each one is autonomous, depending on the location, used materials etc.
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 really do not want to pigeonhole into a single tradition. If I did so, it would be into the one of those who experiment and investigate seeking various forms of expression and trying to be faithful to the own ideas.
Some of my contemporaries within a more extensive list are Olafur Eliasson, Pae White, Gerda Steiner and Jörg Lenzlinger, Sara Ramo, Diego Bianchi and Mark Ryden’s paintings.
Some of the artists that interest me from previous generations are Aizemberg Roberto, Julio Le Parc, Emilio Renart, Emilio Torti, Miguel Harte, Mónica Millán, Mónica Girón.
And some of the artists of intermediate generations are Daniel Joglar, Max Gomez Canle Carolina Senmartin, Mary Bedoian Hernan Soriano, Leopoldo Estol, Adrián Villar Rojas, Nicanor Aráoz, Gala Berger, Patricia Martinez, Adriana Minoliti, Miguel Mitlag, Valeria macule Romina Orazi.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
At this moment I could not say with certainty what are the most significant works and showings I have seen. I’m personally still looking and going through changes of all kinds, as I believe today's society do from which art is a part of. I wish I could be so visionary as to know, but I'm still looking. Until now gatherings of previous works and retrospectives of even deceased artists have been very much revealing, this is the case of the recent showings of Pablo Suarez and Liliana Maresca at the C.C. Recoleta.
