I was born in Tres Arroyos on January 30th 1970. Until I was 5 I lived in the country, I went to a rural kindergarten and later, I moved to the city. When I was 21I moved to Buenos Aires, I studied film in the CYEVIC and in Avellaneda, photography at Motivarte and contemporary art with Fabiana Barreda. Nowadays I’m going through an introspective process regarding the production of art, one thing leads to another and I’m feeling a snow ball that gets bigger and carries me, I don’t know where yet… But I believe in the magic of art, in the health of the creative process and in the daily madness of struggling to be honest!
I was selected twice for the Klemm Price of Visual Arts. I exhibited in Recoleta Cultural Center, Elsi del Rìo, crimson gallery, Boquitas Pintadas and in several cities in the rest of the country.
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 don’t find a specific work that represents me, maybe the most personal series of work I did is “My life in pink” [Mi vida en rosa], because I used pictures from my childhood, and at some point this series allow me to exorcise myself, in other words, to remove some bitter moments of a time where I was not entirely happy, a step into maturity, when pink stopped being a negative word.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
My work is usually read in series, as groups of works, “My life in pink” [Mi vida en rosa] and “It’s not good for man to be alone” [No es bueno que el hombre esté solo] as well, or any of my other series always tell a story. The last series, “The One and the Others” [Los Unos y los Otros] is the first one in which each portrait can be seeing separately, although it leads to fantasies with a possible storyline, a possible order.
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 admire and identify myself with the works of Marcos López, his Pop Latino and his mise en scene, with Liliana Porter and the photography of small dolls, and with the works of conceptual French artist Sophie Calle.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
The exhibition of Liliana Porter at Recoleta Cultural Center some years ago had a great impact on me, I had never seen her videos and I was overwhelmed.
