It is called regeneration. When a building is knocked down, it leaves a gap in the landscape, similar to the one a missing tooth leaves in the denture, where the air circulates freely; missing the mass, the warmth of that edifice it used to cast before. The exhibition – an installation, combines mural drawings, modified found objects, mouth blown glass, probiotics and pollution. Sculpture functions as either lenses and filters, distorting, multiplying, and letting the light through. Although it suggests some narrative, we can only see some parts of its structure, showing first an introduction, the surface, or epidermal layer of the city as a body, to then penetrate into its entrails, a world of darkness and artificial light.
