Ancho de Pasillo

Ancho de pasillo (Corridor’s width) is an experimental exercise of translation carried out in collaboration with scenic artists Catalina Lescano and Mario Barceló.

The particular architecture of the access corridors in PH housing buildings in Buenos Aires; historical and political research on this housing typology; questions about community in the big city and speculative conversations about collective spaces developed into a text. Lescano and Barceló gave body and voice to this text, translating it to the tall walls, pavement, plants, doors and small details of the corridor of a PH complex in Fitz Roy Street, Buenos Aires. The action and the architecture in the corridor were documented with audio recording, and this material was translated into a speechless performance in the exhibition space.


Text, audio piece and performance are presented together without a clear hierarchy or linear narrative, with an attempt to explore the dialogue between mediums instead of delving into the mediums themselves.
