FAT CUBE

Solid marble cube and adipometer (12x12x12cm)
2020

Pinned by an adipometer - a calliper used to estimate the amount of internal fat by measuring the thickness of a fold of skin - the white geometric shape reveals a body surplus. The relationship between the rational form and the excess indicates the interface between rational thinking and profit. The accumulation of the economic surpluses through processes of rationalization / colonization. In the wake of Oiticica's thoughts - "Purity is a myth" - and Foucault - "there is no policy that is not a policy of the body" - everything that surrounds us is mediated by the body, devoured by our senses, and goes through a anthropophagic organicity process.

WHOSE DREAMS?

Object with photographic print (fine art), acrylic, painted wooden base (15x15cm)
2018

A reflection on the production of fiction, its distribution and effects on the societies. The ambiguity of the phrase appeals to what really matters today - "no longer the truth, but the ability to appeal to human emotions and to align statements to meet or even develop collective anxieties", as sociologist Margaret Abraham argues.
The work/message unfolds in different formats (object, multiples, mural).

Two identical photographs give the illusion of two blue eyes. As the viewer approaches, he/she sees the image of a couple. Amelia, the woman in the picture, holds a flashlight illuminating Justin.

90 DEGREES

A small installation of a printed picture inside a plastic soap holder (15x18x11cm)
2004

The image shows a nude artist in the Sea of Galilee, in Israel. The set scenario indicates a wasteland with delimitated territories, guard dogs and the gesture of waiting. The mechanism allows one to rotate the image into the box closing the scene within and making it disappear. It indicates the relationship between the boundaries seeing in the set and the physical boundary of the box.
