NO WALLS, BUT TRANSPARENCIES

"The ruins in their singularity are the most living thing in history, since only what has survived its destruction, what has remained in ruins, lives historically," says María Zambrano. Jorge Scrimaglio, Argentine architect, is a builder who appeals to that spirit that Kahn defined in the same sense: “you have to surround buildings with ruins”. And a building that appeals to be a ruin, with walls that are not such, that house emptiness and serve as support to a sense that extends triumphant; as a way of survival, not from what it was, but from what it did not become. Empty as absence. Making concrete a possibility not yet realized, like the life of the ruins that are indefinite and more than any other spectacle awakens in the mind of those who contemplate them the impression of an infinity.

PHOTOGRAPHY AS A CONSTRUCTION OF ARCHITECTURAL SENSE

Gonzalo Maggi, in his photography, provides entity to a space that, although occupied, emanates a certain feeling of emptiness. By introducing a subject, an individual but metonymic form of existence, he gives architecture a meaning that exceeds its own ontology.

AN ANGEL, COLUMBUS, WRESTLERS AND A PAIR OF WINGS: THE COUNTER ALLEGORY AS A RESIGNIFICATION OF HISTORY

The echoes of the bells from the Church of San Ignacio of Loyola, in Buenos Aires, resound on the stones of the old Manzana de las Luces historical complex, one of the last buildings from the colonial era that survive in the city’s historic center. The place, which through the centuries has been a convent, a Museum of Natural Sciences and even a Faculty, transpires hispanic barroqueness. It is now a museum without a permanent exhibition; it is, in its way, a monument of its own. In the courtyard, the spectator looks upwards and there stand the balconies of the old cloisters, higher up the glass and steel walls of the skyscrapers of the financial district and, poised on the museum’s ceiling, observing this ancient patio, an unwinged angel that looks out of place. And it is. Or maybe not.

TRANSMODERNISMOS, CONCEPTUALITIES OF THE HABITAT AND THE BODY

Fabiana Barreda's work, exhibited at BAphoto 2021 at the OdA Arte stand, amalgamates different cases and concepts within the idea of ​​space and the politics of feminism. With references to the great architectures, and to the female body as habitable and inhabiting, subjectivities are called into question and once again photography plays a catalytic role of simultaneous approach and estrangement.
