Story Transcript


My work and practice is deployed in a wide area covering video, drawing, writing and installation. In video I have two production lines, broadly speaking: a near-documentary line, and another investigating certain performative qualities of writing, speech and text. In both there is a search around the tensions between image and word. In drawing, I try to tighten the boundaries between drawing and writing; and my literary production also explores a border between fiction and reality. So I think that all my work has in common a certain insistence to inhabit the borders between categories or different things and explore the translations we make between different or similar but dislocated universes. I am very interested in the way contemporary art builds and rethinks different forms of knowledge, making use of common tools, but used in unorthodox ways, without following scientific protocols or, in any case, subverting them. In these processes can coexist found objects, stories and questions about the display devices of these processes: sometimes they are books, sometimes it is the space, sometimes action itself and the traces it leaves.

B. 2008, 58 minutes https://vimeo.com/37261807 B. is a visual essay and the portrait of a process of knowledge. Using Walter Benjamin’s unfinished book “Passagenwerk” as a point of departure to explore the current state of those old passages in Paris, the video compares literature with experience, memory with perception and thus attempts to put in action some benjaminian concepts. Video made within the framework of the 2007 program of artistic residences between Buenos Aires and Paris, with the support of the Ville of Paris, Secretaría de Cultura de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires and the Embassy of France in Argentina.

The letter of B. Drawings, 2007/2012 While I was researching on the Arcades Project of Walter Benjamin, I started doing a series of drawings copying his handwriting, after the reproductions of his documents published by the Benjamin Archive in Berlin. In 2012 I made a new series that was shown at the exhibition The life of others, in Akbank Center, Istanbul, 2013, and in MALBA, Museum of Latinamerican Art of Buenos Aires, 2014.

Dictations 2011, 13:45 min https://vimeo.com/19461164 Password: sigloxix Filmed on a train ride from the center of Buenos Aires to the suburbs, the video documents the action of manually copying the "Letter of Jamaica" by Simon Bolivar, a document dating from 1815 and developing the Venezuelan´s political philosophy in the form a diagnosis and prognosis for Latin America. The tour shows the different urban, social and economic landscapes of the city of Buenos Aires and its suburbs, to rethink the ideas in this text and compare them to the present and to introduce the problem of translation between these ideas and practice. Being that a text in which Bolívar raises the possibility of turning the Spanish colonies into republics – a text written in the midst of the wars for Independence, a piece that is as much the result of careful observation and speculative thinking, as the movement itself, ie, is thought and action at a time - the idea for this video was to contrast the slowness of writing with the speed of travel, making manual copying text a way of foot traffic in the action, appropriating the words while the environment is changing.

Bilingüe/ Bilingual 25 min, 2013 https://vimeo.com/84852298 In 2010, I was invited by a German theater director to film the making of a piece in the so called genre of “documentary theater”. The resulting video shows a series of situations related to the production of this play that was performed in Germany involving a German dancer, an Argentine singer, and three Argentine musicians from a wichi community. Considering this unique event -which takes place between Berlin and Santa Victoria Este, in the province of Salta (Argentina)- as a starting point, the video develops a series of reflections and observations about the experiences and ways in which different forms of communication and cultural translation are put into play, along with its obstacles, bridges, shortcuts and challenges.

Diamante Solo show Galería 713, Buenos Aires, Argentina. July 2011. Diamante (Diamond) implies a reunion with the materiality of drawing, working with the gesture, in pen and ink, and sometimes, but only sometimes, incorporating a measure of color: red, green, blue. A Diamond is a cut gemstone, with thousands of facets that reflect the light (enlightenment and knowledge). But in this case is also a memory exercise in which archaeological layers appear; a journey to the origin of images that have been dreamed, imagined, or perhaps remembered: photo stills that present us Orlando’s love affairs in the novel by Virginia Wolf, while he escapes from the 18th century to appear in the 19th. Ornaments that are transformed into women’s clothing; handwriting as a shape, as an art language. These drawings − a combination of memories and oblivion, of disorderly lines and geometric forms, of erupting volcanoes and Möbius spirals − were born from the necessity to recover concentration, the pleasure of the stroke and an intimate silence.

Juana y Fausta 2012, 4:20 min https://vimeo.com/46180312 Clave: charla (Juana and Fausta) A hand browses the argentine edition of Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë 's novel, published in a children's collection called "Robin Hood", very popular for generations of Argentineans. The gestures repeats with a book printed in Arabic, as a counterpoint between the two languages, two ways of writing and reading . The illustrations also show two types of aesthetics in female representation, intervened by a gesture that recreates the figure of the veil, trying to find out if stereotypes are in the picture or in our interpretation of it.

Doubles 2013, 10 minutes. https://vimeo.com/106059341 Password: doppelganger Doubles compiles fragments of a series of interviews with Mexican dubbing actors, whose voices are iconic for television and film seen on Latin America from the 60s onwards. These figures tell stories about their metier, while they also develop reflections on the role of the task, translation, the supposed neutrality of language, the relationship between image and sound, and identity.
