In Inside Out, I explore beyond traditional screen printing by means of a technique called devore. Making use of a chemical that burns out specific fibres of mixed fabrics, I create transparencies that allow glimpses of the space behind. Thus, the space/image is built by the darkness of that space and the fibres that remain untouched. My proposal here is to read the superposition of represented and real space as the testing of the boundaries of both kinds of spaces.
This project is part of a series of works on the problem of translating spaces, which also includes the works Ruined and Landscape Translations.
