2018 Through the Bibliothek (searching for Matta-Clark)
Screen print and acrilic on canvas, 60x80 cm
work, like many begins with a place that was part of my everyday
life: the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek in Leipzig located a few steps away from my former workshop. The library is a monolithic construction, which strongly characterizes its
surroundings. I felt a type of challenge: between me and this building that I wanted to
dissect, divide, split it open.
I multiplied it in several sections: by printing it the building loses its
weight, allowing itself to be modeled in a sequence that could multiply it
towards the infinite. The idea of sectioning it is intended as a citation
of Gordon Matta-Clark’s 'cuts' that had strong political value. The
'splitting' in my case wants to touch the outside, opening the possibility of
modeling the landscape outside of the space of the image.
