Installing Allusions

Folds draw two distant points on a surface nearer to each other, creating shortcuts. This can be seen as a spatial manipulation that suggests new relations, leaving empty spaces of signification. On the fluid structure of a curtain, folds form and become undone in continuous motion. Archives are similar, moments defined by the moving relations of the elements they contain. When new materials are included, categories are re-specified and new relations are drawn between them. This collection presents itself as an open archive, where the process of insertion and extraction is constantly happening, each element is a prop of each other, an allusion that is conceived to perpetually suggest different definitions of the others.
