series of cutouts of objects - ongoing, 2016 ongoing
This series is an investigation into the language of things and an underlining of the fragmented reality to which you and I are constantly subjected.
Out of the need to bring the environment closer, I made cutouts/portraits of objects that show where my body and its environment meet. Each shape evidences the contours of where my body was in contact with a particular surface. For instance in this case (on the left) it shows the spaces touched when sitting on a chair. Call it an alternative form of documentation, call it an act.
The pieces point to all that is not touched and the impossibility to fully absorb something. -It’s only particles of your loved ones that you can hold.- In the portfolio the cutouts are attached on a wall and presented in the same order of “documenting”.
Sometimes a cutout is self-contained (like the handportret of a take away coffee p4), sometimes the cutouts are part of -a larger picture- a group (like the full body portret of the living room p7).
The series travels through time and space and results in an ever-expanding collection.
