What was, What is

2011-2014  
We are living in an era of destruction, reconstruction and renovation: An era where history is abolished and reassembled. Structures collapse and the old is superseded by the new.

Meanwhile whatever survives turns into a token of what had been; An evidence of time, a mark of an era. It is what combines my lived experience with the experience of my previous generations. It flourishes a sense of belonging inside me, belonging to something venerable and persistent, a past that forms who I am at present.

What was and what is.

These works are moments that record an experience, the experience of being in that moment. Before long, they will also be history.
