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 choose the work: "Liu, Wei Ni" It is a 6x7 mts. photography. This photograph is the first of a series I'm developing with people from the Chinese and Taiwanese community in Buenos Aires –either for study or work-. The hardest part is getting them to pose for me, there is clearly a cultural distance and it is not easy to understand each other. I have studied Chinese for 4 years and my work is now traversed by this situation.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
The way to read my work: It is not clear to me yet. I would like the viewer to immerse in the world I propose. I love the fantasy that allows me to create pictures and these strange worlds. The reality bores me and depresses me. I want the color and brightness to make the viewer to vibrate, I want them to dream and let go.
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 recognize myself into pop art; nowadays I do not know if there is a specific movement or tradition. I know that I love Pop, Andy Warhol, Lachapelle, Pierre et Gilles, Eugenio Recuenco. They are all photographers and artists that work with color and deeply inspire me with their images.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
I have no training in visual arts and I really do not know much of the Argentine art movements, now I'm interested towards works that are born from a true, honest question. I'm tired of the easy and meaningless but spectacular works. I choose "From the Soul", an exhibition that lasted one day, by Gabriel Baggio, Carolina Katz and Zoe Di Rienzo. I think in this showing something beautiful and profound took place, cheesy (in a good way) and very intimate. I am also very interested on "Tertulia", where the proposal was truly radical and intense for those who wandered it.
