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.
I'm interested in the idea of 'artifice', of 'device' In the beginning I built up scenes that I would later on photograph, but then looking through the camera to construct the mise-en-scène proved to be enough for me; and by mise-en-scène I mean the color, the shape, the associations... The decision made regarding the color is very important, the idea of "sameness" is absurd to me, to think that photography reproduces the exact same colors. This idea of 'artifice' is not only produced when the image is constructed, but also when it is contemplated; thus, fiction mutates, transforms and reassures itself with every viewer. As time went by new things have came to mind when looking at an image, and this are not necessarily related to a certain source, but rather to a context.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
The one the viewer prefers.
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?
At this moment, and above all with photography related to a pictorial tradition. Videos tend to be more performatic. I usually work with photographs and videos, installations and some intervention; these are the tools that currently suit me the most. There are a lot of artists that interest me, among them: Andrea Ostera, Felix Gonzales Torres, Sophie Calle, Leo Battistelli, Román Vitali, Constanza Alberione, Marcelo Villegas, Leandro Comba, Mauro Guzmán, Adrián Villar Rojas, Liliana Porter, Silvana Lacarra, Ana Gallardo, Pablo Siquier, Marcelo Pombo, Jack Pierson, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Eiko Tamaki, Miranda Lichtenstein, Louise Bourgeois, Maya Deren, Rineke Dijkstra, Tomas Demand, Nancy Davenport…
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
"Arte Abstracto Argentino"(Argentine Abstract Art), in Proa. Because concrete artists interest me. "Fotografía y Ficción" (Photography and Fiction), by Liliana Porter, at the Centro Cultural Recoleta, because I felt like seeing it again and again.
"Trueque" (Barter) in the Museo Castagnino, because of María de Spinelli's proposal.
