Buenos Aires, Argentina
30 years ago, I came across a story in the form of a comic called "Parque Chas", dedicated to a neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The comic reveals, in several chapters, the adventures of a writer who was told by someone that fantastic and extraordinary things happen there. Where wonderful magical people live.
The reason that "out of the ordinary" things can take place, is because the center of the neighbourhood was planned and constructed as a spider's web or a labyrinth.
That's why the “Chas-chasians” say that if you enter into that concentric form, you may never leave and magical things can happen to you. Essentially, in Parque Chas everything is possible.
All those years later, I decided to travel thousands of kilo-meters to see for myself.
But what really led me to travel there was to discover if the following saying was true: "Everything you ever lost in your life, exists in Parque Chas".
And yes, I found it.
The project "Chas Chas" is an intangible exploration of the intricate myths and amazing lives of a neighbourhood. Images, documents, drawings and magic create a world where imagination has no limits. And where whoever was lost, will be found.
