Vanishing points (2016)
Coins from differents countries.
(…)”The work Pontos de fuga / Vanishing points (2016) (…) shows a series of coins that have been changed by their constant handling. Their expression comes from its worn out representation, as well as from its image being replaced by something undergoing transformation. Thus, the head, the statue or the monument they carry fades away leaving an idea of process. Yet, its interpretation is also the result of reassembling the parts into a brand new whole. The coins that were once economic currency are now displayed in a suspended time, holding now a different meaning, a poetic one, supported by our gaze and the gaze these images still carry after all this time.” (…)
