CUT OUT – open serie 2014
Selection as an act, generally implies a separation, a particular consideration, an in-depth study of the established element. Selection is also the final result of a research culminating in an evaluation which often rewards the most deserving candidate.
“Be selected” consists in a series of photographs which document performances involving adhesive tape. By sticking short segments of coloured tape over the scene around the subject I trace the silhouette of the chosen element therefore creating the selection and and turning the subject into an artwork. A sort of anamorphosis allows me to create an illusion as if the tape was fluctuating in the air or as if it was simply a vector image. The final result of the performance is to be printed on phographic paper.
