A succession of markers placed out of field. Installation view. 2011


The collages and postcards illustrate diverse installation views of a past exhibition where several elements of a natural site have been brought into the exhibition space and arranged as parts of sculptural compositions. Each record has been created by assembling different parts of found material. In this sense, the collection functions as a parafiction where the individual parts that compose this fake archive come from real archival material playing with the traditional notions of the archive by merging fiction and fact. The character of the archive oscillates from the found and the constructed, the factual and the invented, the personal and the public. There is no univocal or determined logic within this archive; it designates a territory where diverse imagined narratives can take place. Where the traditional archives are places where one can find the established, this archive provides an insight of a place that never was.
