About this Event

About Sinapsis

“Resembling sparkling strands of color, Constanza Oxenford’s feathered fairies stage a silent show; lightning bugs traversing the yawning blackness of the shot on airy wings. The shapes, more or less feather-like, much like Dante’s lights vie for the dramatic zenith of the light. The symbol emerges, not from mythical bolt but bound within a lower frequency, reduced, almost enough to touch, delicate and subdued. Much like the insect that troubled Pliny with its disregard for the deadliness of flames, the hairy, floating threads of web crackle in the burning experiment devised by Oxenford from the relationship between manual act, mechanical object and visual record.”

Excerpt by Eduardo Stupía

About the artist

Constanza Oxenford was born in 1970 and got her BA degree in Political Sciences and International Relations at the Universidad Católica Argentina and MA in Political Sciences from Columbia University. She founded Germinare Foundation in 2001, which she runs to the present day.

Her first contact with art happened when she was 7, as a piano student. In year 2000, she had her first formal encounter with photography and processing at the New School of New York.

She has entered the BA Photo exhibition from 2016 to 2019. She’s also part of the Argentine Contemporary Art Fair (FACA for its acronym in Spanish) in 2018. That same year, she showed the “Sinapsis” exhibit in OdA Art Gallery, curated by Eduardo Stupía.

Through 2017 and part of 2018, she had one on one art clinic with Eduardo Stupía and is currently engaged in the same manner with Alberto Goldenstein. In August, she showed “Dimensiones de Lo Mismo” at OdA Gallery curated by Goldenstein.
