Espacio La Pileta is an artistic project, an independent cultural space where the work of visual artists, multidisciplinary artists, and photographers is developed. At the same time, it is a self-managed educational space where courses and seminars are offered by the artists themselves. La Pileta emerged in 2022 as a result of the search by a collective of artists for the development of their work. Currently, it houses sculptors, painters, draftsmen, photographers, and electronic artists. The space hosts exhibitions, free activities, classes, cultural events related to various artistic disciplines, and welcomes different proposals from the neighborhood cultural scene.

The atelier is directed by Edgardo Rojas y Paola Koch

Edgardo Rojas

"I am an architect and sculptor who completed the Master's in Interactive Design at FADU-UBA (University of Buenos Aires) and a Diploma in Urban Design at UCV (Central University of Venezuela). I was a scholarship recipient from FNA (National Arts Fund) in 2022. I also took workshops in molding and sheet metal folding at UNA (National University of the Arts) and a workshop in Bio-Fabrication and biomaterials led by Ana Laura Cantera. My projects span various fields, including interactive installations, generative art, parametric design, and bio-design. I am an active participant in the PACC collective (Puentes de Acciones Culturales de Colegiales), where we engage in actions and interventions in the community to advocate for public spaces and neighborhood memory. I was involved in coordinating the Échale Color project, a community integration program through interventions in public spaces in vulnerable neighborhoods. Throughout my journey, I discovered a strong interest in working on projects involving collective construction, co-creation in specific territories, and the intersection of disciplines. These projects often require the use of diverse technologies for production. At times, I find it compelling to design systems for form generation, set these systems in motion, and explore different directions to arrive at new places. The technological and material exploration leads to new questions and perspectives in my work."

Paola Koch:


"I live and work in Buenos Aires. I am a feminist visual artist with a degree in Visual Arts from the University of the Argentine Social Museum. My artistic practice includes sculptures, drawings, analog photography, and installations. The starting point of my work revolves around the human body as a territory, particularly focusing on the female body. I explore the traces and scars that women carry throughout history. My artwork revolves around intimacy with a dual focus: the body and the interior of one's own home. It portrays the lives of two women (mother and daughter), where intimacy and the emotional bonds that unite them are staged and unfolded. I coordinate a sculpture workshop for adults, teaching classes periodically for over 7 years. In 2018, I co-founded the art collective T.E.T.A. (Territorio Experimental de Transformaciones Afectivas) with four colleagues. With T.E.T.A., we have executed various installations both within and outside the art circuit. One of these projects was selected to participate in the 'Nosotras Luchamos' Festival at the Karne Kunst art gallery in Berlin. I exhibited at RAF, Rojo al frente, in the [Cambiar el Mundo II] Como un rayo, en la nube tóxica exhibition, curated by Federico de la Puente. I was part of Clínicas 4 x 4, with Federico de la Puente and Pablo Sinaí. I also participated in La GranPaternal 8, presenting my work, 'Territorio Propio,' at Kurku Taller de Arte, and in the 2023 Performance Encounter at Umbral Espacio de Arte."
