IN-TRIGÂ BOOKCASE. The over eighty tablets that make up the installation are organized according to several themes that correspond to the words of my personal dictionary: PAPER, LINE, DEATH, STONE, SKIN, REALITY, SENSATION, DUST. Alongside the tablets there are other elements - studio leavings / workshop remnants - which served as basis for the installation, such as jars of ash and vegetal dust, dried flowers, coal, salt, boxes of paper remains, mummified objects, files from old books, underlined books, notebooks with handwritten quotations, sketches of ideas, photos, objects found, memories, etc.

         TABLETS are hieroglyphs of my studio life / mental structures that oscillate between book and paintings / tool-containers. A tablet can be viewed, read, touched, smelled, and involving the viewer's body. The tablets have two sides: image (sketch / photo) and quote (writing / photo). Several tablets are organized into bookcase bodies and correspond to the structure of the Big Trigâ Dictionary. A tablet involves: stirr-ing, sift-ing, stor-ing, preserv-ing, prim-ing, lock-ing, stack-ing, sand-ing, transferr-ing, cutt-ing, wett-ing, dry-ing , us-ing. On the one hand, I selected and cut my old artistic sketches, which I transferred to the tablet support, and on the other I proceeded by a similar selection and adjustment, respectively, of the quotations extracted from past and present.
