Text sent by the artist:
This proposal starts at the child game of constructions, in order to work on further more formal subjects such as simulation, imitation or fragility. I will play building unstable structures that will constantly fall apart. Pieces will be made in painted paper as if they were made in wood.
Deepening into the unreal concept, what seems to be and is not. On the other hand the action will be lightened by a spot light, focusing on theatricality and representation. In this action I will play with randomness of constructions, being built where pieces will take down therefore leaving a sort of trace or path of those constructions that speak of what could be but never was.
