¿POR QUÉ ME PERSIGUEN LOS ARCHIVOS?
Why do archives haunt me?
Sound installation, 19:43 minutes, November 2020
Curated for the exhibition The Collection listens, Palais de Glace, Buenos Aires.
This piece researches the works on the collection of a traditional prize in Argentina, the National Salon, which has existed since 1911. The audio was installed in the deposit of sculptural works that have remained in the possession of Palais de Glace since the 1930s. Going through the catalogs of the awards, the audio makes a journey that threads some points in relation to the problem of selecting, filing, remembering and also what is left out of that selection that builds up a collection.
