Air archaeology


Can we forget what was never known? This series is based on a concern to retain, appropriate and immortalize something effimeral and fragile: the bodies of birds found in the streets of Montevideo. Typically, these bodies are ignored or pushed aside. Following Bourriaud's line of thought*, they can be understood as an "exform", that is, as something that remains outside the central order where the productive and official narratives lay. 


In an attempt to rescue these forms and bring them to the center of our attention, a series of colorful and large paintings are made. This work proposes a centripetal movement that brings the rejected to the center of our attention and incorporates it into our imagination, giving them a place in the world.
