Nonverbal Dialogues 2019

Nonverbal Dialogues 

July – August 2019

Wind and Weather Window Gallery

Mixed media, site specific.

This work is a sculptural and site specific installation that observes and explores how different/found objects, from diverse resourses that relate to each other. The objects create a new meaning, a nonverbal dialogue in the space between them, connecting objects, fragments and constructing gestures.

My work is process-based and takes shape in site-specific installation and sculptures. I use different techniques together and span a variety of materials and scales, moving from small details to bigger structures. Each location triggers an element in my practice that shapes each work and its context. I explore how objects create new meaning by connecting and placing them in new contexts. Dealing with different systems, their framework and the movement within them. My way of working is active, experimental, reflective and fragmented.  It´s like a fragmented, non-linear narrative presented as a spatial mind map, where objects create language, gestures, tension and balance.
