Domesticated




2018-19
Permanent ink on glass
Variable dimensions



The artwork reconstructs the urban scene and highlights, not only the external imagery, but alsowhat comes as possession and misfortune with it. Despite the crowded set-up, the transparentaspect lets light through. The green spaces are represented by empty spots which create anew dimension between the glass and the shadow underneath it. What might seem to be arepresentation of reality is also, a way to rethink the technique and its tools, in search of newaesthetic solutions. In that sense, architecture can embody both authenticity and playfulness. Domesticated explores public ownership as a urban/vernacular architecture that transforms to aliving organism that reflects what the inhabitants wants.
