The Mapping Project maps artists and artist studios throughout Central America. This is an on-going work in progress and will soon turn into a residency program for writers and curators to discover artists far off the tourist route.

Studio Visit: Javier Calvo

Studio Javier Calvo

For Costa Rican artist Javier Calvo (b. 1981), art is not made, it happens. It is an opportunity for change, something akin to what Alain Badiou calls a promise. This approach, which takes root in the ways we imagine and tell stories about ourselves, allows the artist to address the collectively established myths, practices, and policies that he sees leading us – often rapidly – to dehumanization.

Studio Carlos Fernández

Independent of location and thanks to a world surrounded by constant inspiration, Fernandez has no reason to separate his daily life from art. He always finds little pieces of the puzzle that then fit into the big picture and give rise to new projects.

Studio Sussan

Sussan is constantly designing: small, random, minimalist compositions surround her workspace. Her project Metáfora was born out of a drive to be self-taught. She approaches her work through formal and syntactical investigations of materials,color and form. Drawing in particular has become a central concept in her praxis.

Studio Verónica

Alfaro's investigation process emerges from the formal and topical elements of a house, from inhabiting and the possibilities it offers, from materiality to the manifestation of emotional processes. That observation also generates a certain symbolic material that is reflected in discourse: sometimes the house is also a being. A drive based in memories passed from generation to generation, whose conquest is demarcated by the very rebellion of the house, its resistance to being conquered.

Studio Pablo

Cianca knows things about the cameras of the past. Since beginning his university studies he has focused on film; more in-depth explorations over the course of his studies led to an interest for other ways of filming and creating that moved beyond fiction, and he was led to documentaries. Finding old video cameras in his grandmother's house was a good start. A TV and a collection of videotapes to go through. He began working with home movies, naturally drawn to memory.
