This project recounts an attempt at finding, in Buenos Aires, a translation of an early poem written by Jorge Luis Borges about that city. The search for the seemingly inexistent translation is replaced by looking for somewhere in Buenos Aires in which to translate the poem. The poem and the city become elusive sites of possible meanings, impossible to decipher.

Exhibited at Galleria Huuto, Helsinki, Finland, April - May, 2011.
