Shadow Work, 2017
Bricks, carpets
103 x 550 x 435 cm.

A low “wall” of bricks interspersed by a series of carpets weaving their way through the rows. Combining a horizontal and vertical dimension, an inside and an outside, soft and hard materials, the domestic and the public spheres, the work alludes to the reciprocal permeability of the institutions and human activities, to their ceaseless mutual interference, to their characterizing instability and, consequentially, their potential to transform and adapt.
