Jimena Croceri, Interspaces
Interspaces is a group workshop to experience proximities -changes in the state of matter, feelings of time, rituality, humidity, fusion. The workshop is part of a series of meetings during which the artist invites people, collaborators, friends, to rehearse and trace spaces between their bodies. What remains, when the bodies separate is the hardened imprint, the solidified air in the shape of a bone that connect you to others.
A brief presentation of the series and several preparatory activities will be performed at the beginning, through a shared mental and physical process. The meeting is driven by the desire to activate participation of others and it is open to anyone and every body. If the weather graces us, the workshop will be held on the beach.

Jimena Croceri (based in Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a visual artist who uses diverse media. Her artistic practice is characterized by intention and experiment, by resistance and fluidness. In a laboratory method which isn’t either rational or sterile but more curious than precise her work consists of various elements which are all protagonists: time, chance, collaboration, correlation and coincidence – they don’t diminish authorship but neither do they foreground it. Producing collective knowledge with others around her (humans and no humans) have been very important for her practice for the last years. Using both daily materials and naturally occurring elements her work probes soft spots between gestures and rituals wich became new methods for performance drawings or sonic compositions. She completed a bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts at the National University of Art in Buenos Aires. She also participated in the Art program at Torcuato Di Tella University (2013) and was a scholar at the Center for Artistic Research of Buenos Aires (2014). In 2016 she received a travel grant from the Oxenford collection to conduct research in the Brazilian Amazon and was the artist in residence at FLORA ars+natura in Bogotá, Colombia in 2018.This year she worked as a fellow at the exchange program «Coincidencia» by Pro Helvetia in Switzerland. In 2020 she will receive the Pernod Ricard Fellowship at the Villa Vassilieff, Paris.
