Surface A & Surface B, 2014

Transfer and graphite on paper
Dyptich. 180 x 115 cm each

The idea of puzzle or hyerogliph is the point of departure for these works. Starting by selecting some photographs I collected a while ago, mostly from old newspaper clippings, I transferred these images on to long vertical rolls of paper. The majority of the pictures selected correspond to remains, traces of objects related to an ancient or recent past, as it is the case in Surface A and Surface B. In the process of production though some of the images have been hidden beneath layers of graphite while others have been left exposed.
