Around 2002 the idea of deconstruction, both as a concept and as a method or a process to understand a matter by destroying it, guided most of my production. In drawings and sculptures of the time there is an insistent will to decompose a form and create a new one out of the remain bits. Explosions, stratified structures that expand in space, broken architectonic forms encapsulated in rooms, are recurrent images. They all ressemble bursting structures that overflow the limits of what is containing them. Some works have a more nuclear compact configuration like concentrations of energy and matter, while others exemplify the contrary: desintegration and decay.
