  • Title of Work:Thirty Thousands and One!
  • Nationality:Argentina
  • Artist Statement:
    Knowing that the theme of the Biennial this time is: ARTISTIC AFFECTION FOR THE NATIVE LAND and that this year we commemorate thirty years of the most terrible period of Argentine history I considered important to remember it in my presentation.

    My work is titled "Thirty Thousands and One!" in remembrance of the 30,000 missing people enhancing the meaning that each person is unique. An empty chair, an eye without face, tears all over, and a permanent whisper that repeats: thirty thousands and one....

    Although my life as a visual artist had an early beginning and I reached a solid academic training in printmaking, the challenge today is to expand my expressive possibilities linking myself with video art, music and literature professionals, with whom I share the task of building together artworks based on my engravings. For this work I used my background in traditional printmaking together with my own technical creation.
