viviana uchitel


“To create, to experiment, to search for unusual materials, to investigate forms, to abandon preconceived ideas about what clothes should look like… I have always used different, unexpected materials, such as rubber threads, metal pieces found in old hardware stores or resin stones, guided, by the idea of combining new textures on the same color. I guess, deep inside, I was trying to weave, dye or sow seeking for an unknown end, while understanding that what matters is the beauty of the trip itself, the search. By the end, the finished garment is no longer mine but for whoever will wear it in the future.”

VIVIANA UCHITEL (Buenos Aires, 1958) was raised among painting, theatre, sculpture and dyeing lessons in an intellectual family, typical of the Argentine golden 1960s. ”My mother was in love with art and beauty, a passion that would extend to paintings, books, and -naturally- to lovely clothes and design: not luxury, but beauty. A passion that she would later transmit to her children“. It is not unusual then, that by the age of six, Uchitel had already begun her long artistic education. First, at the Escolinha de arte, later at the Instituto de arte Lalbardén and at the Fine Arts School while at the same time taking painting lessons under Noé Nojechowicz and María Luisa Manassero, sculpture lessons under Antonio Pujía and dyeing techniques under Tana Sachs.
