Migration, 2013

Cotton fabric dyed with bleach on canvas
135 x 250 cm

Migration #1 shows a series of small washed out cotton fabric pieces that have been succesively discolored with bleach water, spread onto a natural beige cotton fabric. These pieces are remains of a bigger piece of fabric which once constituted a work that ended being torned apart. (Other previous works, Rockaway Destroyed #1 and Rockaway Destroyed #2 were also made out of the same fabric piece).

These remains were kept in a drawer and every now and then displayed onto blank fabric pieces on the floor, creating random compositions that induced the consideration of the logics of arrangement of units in space and the role of chance in their distribution. Those compositions half chance, half intentional led to the making of Migration #1.
