Exiled in France during the civic-military dictatorship, she returned to Argentina in 1986 with her book of poetry Tatuajes/Tatouages. While the bilingual sound of her literature appropriates the cinema to undertake a literary world that encompasses the story and the essay.

Reading itineraries consider the vision of a Stalker: a restless conception whose mission is wonder itself.
Sociologist from the Public University of Navarra, where she lived between 1998 and 2006, Mercedes Álvarez was born in Tandil in 1979. Her books invariably overflow towards a place of hope that still seems unknown: Saigón, Grow a Lover, The drop on the stone, are finally agreements where to formalize the deed in destinations as unforeseen as they are honest.

Set designer, art director and visual artist, Marcelo Salvioli was born in La Plata in 1956. He lives and works as he thinks: The action of drawing, - he says - is his primary impulse, an integral act where the whole body participates; the drawing, a kind of dance.

If there is something that characterizes home objects, it is their human scale and a fan, after all - he says - it is a wind instrument that rotates.
Oscar Carballo was born in Buenos Aires in 1959. A visual artist, writer and film director, his work, heterogeneous and practically hidden, has postulated a strong divergence between the visual arts and design, two disciplines in his opinion, irreconcilable. Even when he considers aesthetic fascination as an excess of moral happiness, every work, he says, is a private speech that grants the audience a lasting, genuine and final emotion.
Emilio Torti was born in Rosario in 1952. Visual artist and teacher, both his extensive pictorial work and his disturbing drawings - a universe of inexhaustible fractals - have always occupied his most important production. Through digital post-production and technologies, derived from those same inquiries, his current work continues to go through the visual experience as a particular adventure of thought.
