If Argentina (that there's a synecdoche, that is) was fully aware of the talent that was temporarily residing there, it might not let you go. Your secret is safe with me, but I can't vouch for the others on S6.

You are so kind Geoffrey - the funny thing is that I'm currently scheming on how I'm going to get at least some of my artwork out of this country when I leave. They have very aggressive laws and high taxation on any artwork leaving the country - it's been a real problem for art investors (they finally made an amnesty for ArteBA, the big art fair here) and even for artists doing residencies here not being able to take their own work back home with them without paying tariffs on the "retail value" of the works. Imagine my suitcase after nearly 10 years in this place, gulp!

I don't get this!? Isn't this your property? How can someone tax YOU for something that YOU created????
Geoffrey Agrons commented on November 25, 2011 12:35pm
The world's gone mad.
Heather Goodwind commented on November 25, 2011 12:45pm
Welcome to Argentina. The worst part is that you have to register and get a licence for each artwork you want to take out and provide extensive documentation and 2 photos of each one for their records as well. It's almost worse than the tax, given the bureaucratic process here while doing paperwork. Ever seen the movie "Brazil"?
Geoffrey Agrons commented on November 25, 2011 12:52pm
Yes. Dystopia for everyone, I guess, including artists.
Efi Tolia commented on November 25, 2011 12:52pm
Craziness! I would prefer to photograph them and take them with me in a hard drive. In my suitcase. I would sell the originals or offer them to friends or others who can't afford to pay!
Heather Goodwind commented on November 25, 2011 12:54pm
This is so funny, just as we were writing this I got an email reply from an artist friend here who is helping me out with this and he says that they just changed the laws and are not charging artists taxes on their own work unless is has been sold. I still have to do the paperwork, but at least the only cost will be double printing all the photos....

Sh*t! Abandon plan A!!!
Heather Goodwind commented on November 25, 2011 12:57pm
And yes, I'm going to do a big moving sale and hopefully donate some of the larger things to some charity and art organizations here as well.

Wow remind me not to do artwork in Argentina unless I'm leaving it there. Cool piece though...
Heather Goodwind commented on November 30, 2011 11:32am
Thanks Michael, yes, keep it in mind if you end up in Argentina for any length of time - if things are small enough to fit in your suitcase and you've obviously just been drawing while on vacation I'm sure it wouldn't be an issue - but anyone carrying a stretched canvas or a big roll that is obviously a work of art will get questioned at customs.

This is a Fantastic piece!!! Love it!
