Updated, 1997

Installation, 300 x 412 cm

Updated contains a double meaning: on the one hand, the literal one, that of the word itself: what has been done to date, the latest, the most recent… On the other, there is the meaning of the fusion of all experiences until now (fusing experience). The allusion to joining ideas and ways which are recurrent in his work and fusing them in bronze.
They are objects at rest, like inert bodies…
They are objects that confirm and record existence. They are petrified stories, solidified moments. Object theatre, stagings of solitude.
The installation consists of three parts or acts.

DESERTED HOUSE
The imprint on the construction of the personal, its foundations…
The flaw, the wound filled with the intimate.


MINEFIELD
Everyday accidents, traps, private tricks.
Intimate moments. A particular play.

A SILENT STORY
Movement and rest, lightness and weight.
Like absent, inert bodies.
Personal burdens.
A silent ballet.
