Unexpected distances. Scenario #1, (in progress)

Mixed media installation ( wood panel – Kraft paper – stone – 7 drawings on tracing paper – print on paper (81 x 78 cm), drawing on tracing paper, tape – video projected on the floor, graphite on tracing paper, tape).

Commissioned by the 13th Sharjah Biennial, 2017[/vc_column_text][/vc_column]

Unexpected distances. Scenario #2, 2018
Mixed media installation (coloured pencil on paper, rolled paper, metal rod, video projected on the floor)

variable dimensions

Withe the support of the SAM Art Projects.

Unexpected distances is a project that creates, through 3 scenarios, situations which evoke the notion of tension. Each scenario has in common a looped video projected on the ground where a sheet of tracing paper a part of which is graduated is placed. The video shows a wooden branch that resists the flow of a river creating an oscillating movement on the graduated surface of the tracing paper, like a cursor.

The installations combine drawing with video and select objects, which builds on prior investigations of narrative and perception. It pursues a more abstract and philosophical interest in notions of elasticity. This enduring ability is a form of resistance rather than a constraint. Confronting threats of immediate dispossession, this is a principle of organization that will endanger the future.
