CRA’P Resident January 2023 to December 2024


Textures is an exploration of what exists in that space before the expression is formalized.

A transit space for observing that which is manifested.

A space-scribble in which the interior and exterior initially seem blurred.

Inhabiting that confusion to search for the lines that run through us internally, spaces to escape control (that which is established from outside) …

How would it be its opening?

What is the place of interiority? Do takes place?

In this open intimacy exists a common space in which to un-tell us to find ourselves?

Textures is the second outline of the project Estudio sobre el Humo, initiated in 2018, which gives continuity to an exploration centred on the intimacy. It takes as starting point the body in dialogue with a recording practice in different formats – image and writing.
