Lucila Heinberg – Buenos Aires, Argentina



Briefly describe the work you do. 

I work the depth of universality, the solitude, the silence, the stillness, the meeting, the importance of the present. I use a 35mm color film trying to achieve timeless colors, lost in the record, but at the same time having some texture, their own skin.

Also, I really like the idea of publishing books, I was lucky to publish one.

Tell us about your background and how that has had an influence on your work and on you as an artist.

When I was 19 I studied photography without knowing it would be my passion, but I soon realized that it would be my way. So after learning the technique I decided to study with artists I admire, like Adriana Lestido, Ignacio Iasparra and Fabiana Barreda, where I began to go in depth in my work and think about it differently. I have worked with many artists and learning about their work processes has greatly enriched me my job. Traveling has always accompanied my photography.

The concept of the artist studio has a broad range of meanings in contemporary practice. Artists may spend much of their time in the actual studio, or they may spend very little time in it. Tell us about your individual studio practice and how it differs from or is the same as traditional notions of “being in the studio.”

Natural light is part of my photography, I find it essential in my photos , its possible to have things under control in an studio, but I enjoy the outdoors more. What I feel for “Studio” is what I would call my workplace, where I spend hours with my photographs and materials, the place where the projects are born.



What roles do you find yourself playing that you may not have envisioned yourself in when you first started making art?

I never imagined that when being an artist I could occupy some production-manager places in an exhibition, from the implementation to getting the founds to carry out my projects.

When do you find is the best time to make art? Do you set aside a specific time everyday or do you have to work whenever time allows?

Definitely, my time is at night, the energy goes up at that time.



How has your work changed in the past five years? How is it the same?

I will only be able to answer this question with my next project.

How have people such as family, friends, writers, philosophers, other artists or even pop icons had an impact on the work you do?

My grandfather was always with the camera taking pictures of everything, I think that always attracted me. Seeing other art works always influences as well, even if it is not because of the empathy, but the process. I really like Nan Goldin, William Eggleston, Josef Koudelka and others.

Have you ever been pulled in the direction of a pursuit other than being an artist? What are your other interests? 

Besides photography I work with collage, fluorescent colors, adhesive tapes and different materials. Working with the energy of color and how it influences on the mood. I call this work “Cobra Color”.
