born 1967 argentina
A wall is the place where the human body entwines with its habitat. It is the arena where sensuality and rationalism coexists. This body of installations examines the relationship between the body and one's immediate surroundings. By manipulating the surface of a wall or tiles, I am transforming the architectural space into a locus for exploration. The fleshy quality they acquire as a result of this interaction reinforces the contrast between the transience of the body and the endurance of architecture. The subtle alterations in the nature of these architectural settings provoke and challenge our perceptual possibilities. I believe desire thraws our perception.
Each of the shapes I have created and used in the installations has a first name that I randomly selected based on the philosophical notion that a “thing” comes into existence after we name them. Therefore, they are non-fix identities but mirrors that simultaneously trigger memories while creating a unique relationship with each individual viewer.
I believe we transform the places we inhabit while they are transforming us; they become our caves, spaces for revelations.
