Guadalupe is an artist in residency at The Foreshore in Vancouver, Canada.
For her residency at The Foreshore Guadalupe will be working on new stages of an ongoing project (2013-2017). “Silver. La Reina del Plata” explores a geographical, lyrical, and social mirroring between the North West Pacific coast and el Rio de la Plata, river bordering the coast of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The hinge or axis articulating these two spaces is the body itself, mobile, sensorial and poetic. The body/land.
Throughout the duration of the residency, Martinez will focus on developing studio based projects while offering a series of public events that will invite to reflect upon the relationship between performance and phenomenology, the body and the foreshore as site and metaphor, and the notions of “(water)current” and “erosion” as effect and affect.
