En el Medio de las Cosas 2011
En el Medio de las Cosas (In the Midst of Things) is a sculpture-based proposal, that recreates a register of everyday objects: a series of old tools and artefacts from the domains of industry, science, telecommunications, and everyday life fallen in disuse. The exhibition space is filled with a combination of real items and others I have built: life-sized volumes made with printed paper that are folded and assembled like pop-ups.
The real objects have expired, and the sculptures are always on the verge of disappearing. Things echo one another. Materiality stands out, but it is deceiving. Between one glued or folded paper and the next, one may think one is seeing objects. The work forces the beholder to look in the interstices, in the crevasses of form and matter, allowing her to discover the way in which thingness, in the end, vanishes.
