Lines determine the way we experience space: they mark beginning and end, they can either divide an area in multiple parts or serve as a link to otherwise disconnected spaces. For the past twenty years, artist Claudia Vieira has been exploring how our sense of space and time can be transformed through the tracing of continuous lines that appear constantly in her work and define her entire practice.

The performance, for Claudia Vieira, is an act of connection between body and space. The movement of her gestures rises from organic connection to surfaces and allows the artist to blend her body into the architecture and resort to drawing as the most direct expression of thought. it does not matter if Vieira makes use of pen, tape, ink or charcoal, Vieira’s distinctive qualities are highlighted by the empirical relationships of her own body with the surrounding environment and the recording of lived time. Vieira creates optical abysses and one may accompany the experience in an eye-body exercise: delve into the content between the continuous line once whiteness becomes a source of exploitation by the senses, a sensuous fluidity leading to fundamental questions about existence. Alternatively, it is possible to make an attempt at counting the number of threads in order to measure the equidistance, abstraction and physical integration which shows a kinship with art as redefined by Lygia Clark.

In these ruptured landscapes, the artist questions our outsider/insider relationship with what surrounds us. Estefania Velez Rodriguez remembered the unstoppable noise of ambulances outside our windows, and the unsettling fear of the outside, of the virus, and of each other, and yet eschewed the norm to paint landscapes full of cedars, oaks, dark greens, and grey skies in preference to normalize a warmer and more expectant surrounding.

Estefania Velez Rodriguez was born in Puerto Rico, but moved to the continental United States at an early age. This experience led her to feel foreign here and there, everywhere and nowhere, and to see painting as a spatial problem. For this series, she built windows that are simultaneously looking inside and outside and depict a temporal space that only exists relatively within us. She painted throughout the pandemic in her studio in Brooklyn as well as on a rooftop in Mexico City, and pondered how time’s passage is probably an illusion.

Somewear is a series of self-portraits, which struggles with the idea of identity. Setting her body in front of the camera was, for Lucia Fainzilber, a way of looking at herself in another way, trying to answer all those questions about who we really are. Society, family and the generation we live in, make this journey even harder. We camouflage as animals or even soldiers do in order to survive. It’s our way of being inside a system. It’s like a game: if it fits, your vision can be deceived creating almost an optical illusion. Is it possible to isolate our purest self from everything that surrounds us? Somewhere we can find these answers or not. Maybe the real answer is to learn how to live with this but not forgetting to look inside.

08/10/2021

“In close relation with the techniques of engraving, printing and drawing practices, I become a human printer, facing the duality between the serial reproduction on a plot and the unique gesture of the hand guiding the brush, the savoir faire and the endless desire to draw. I insist on the boundaries between the image, the containment of the surface and the structure as an integral part of my work. The drawings occupy space, as do the silences, which become equally relevant in my work.”

#TB to our 2017 Exhibition by Maria Maggiori: #InBetween indicates that something or someone completely inhabits some point that separates two things or is located in the middle of them; it alludes to the physical place as well as to time. The works reveal the search to establish, from the drawing, relationships that are responsible for translating spatial perceptions into lines and exposing that intermediate stage of potentially unstable transition between the materials that make it up.

Maria Maggiori reflects on her work ‘through my drawings, I delve deeper into the physical aspect of repetition, the limits of the contention-structure and the spatial relationship between both. Despite the existence today of more effective reproduction methods, I find that to repeat infinitely as a pattern and to draw, with the gesture of my hand, elements such as the line and the point, is an act which is at once subversive, rebellious and disturbing’
