Untitled (Elastic band)

, 2009
Black pen on paper
8 drawings 50 x 45 cm each

The work consists of eight drawings, traced by tying a pen to an elastic band fixed at the centre of a sheet of paper with a nail.
By moving the pen very fast and away from the centre repeatedly, the elastic band is put in a state of effort and stimulation, and it is led to draw the pen to itself in an attempt to go back to the original resting position.

Electrified hair locks emerge on the paper, flowers, atomic configurations. Moths. With the hope to keep the light always on the same side, and to direct their flight, they continue to turn, make spiral-shaped, wild trajectories. Dangerous. Astonished. Hypnotised and absent. Beautiful.
