IMÁN DE LA BOCA GALLERY
Benito Pérez Galdós 384, Buenos Aires, Argentina
One of the participating artists, DINA RESCA was born in Resistencia, Province of Chaco in northeastern Argentina. Back in the ‘80s she was introduced to loom weaving by Ana María Pratti, an Argentine residing in Italy, who lovingly taught Dina the hidden rules of this millenarian tool. Since then, Dina has been passionate about weaving.
Later on, Silke (a multidisciplinary textile artist,) opened up Dina’s five senses into all directions, and increased her capacity to perceive colors through imagination.
Dina participates with two pieces from her Chrysalis 2013 series.
Skin calls you to existence.
Your senses, your summits, your valleys in dance to your feminine rhythms, reign.
Your body speaks.
Your clay color reminds me of the body that reminds. Women are from the earth, from the shaping of wood, and the ruling of their parcels.
Your body is a piece of this earth.
Chrysalis, princess of feelings, majesty of force and breath; empress of fertile hips, and memories. You are Everything from the same Nothingness. You are Soul.
Other textile creators participating in this show are: Clara Luz Glis, Daniela Tavarone, Mirta Zak, Ana Zlatkes, and Roberta Bacic.
FRAGILITY exhibit: a one-year effort spells success!

CHATEAU CAC CONTEMPORARY ART CENTRE in Córdoba, Argentina is an institution aiming to promote artistic and cultural events within visual arts, audiovisual presentations, as well as design, theatre, music, and poetry, with a strong mixed-media attitude of experimentation and research.
Such context allows contemporary design to flow through the very diverse and mutating territories of ambiguity or even contradiction, within ephemeral, anti-functional, and re-defined elements, thus creating some of the most extreme featured performances.
