Time and movement
During his residency at ´ace, Simon Moore wanted to document the temporality of the moving line of drawing and photography; wondering about the perception of time (memory / history) and how to do it with communication methods (recorded vs. digital). Therefore, he presented and exhibited the engravings as a sculptural installation and as a creation of urban art in public spaces.
I use the printing process with materials and techniques through which I explore experimentation and play. The curious drawing for me always comes first, and engraving is the tool with which I interrogate its mysteries. I finish by going down to the drawing to its most basic elements, I repeat lines to build and create the form that evokes space and depth in two dimensions, which can also disappear. This presence / absence refers to memory: its ability to bring order out of chaos, its ability to stretch and contract time, it always strives to give meaning. During my residency at ´ace I plan to create a series of engravings that are based on my recent experiments with relief / monotype, collage and urban art processes that are a continuation of my Final Thesis for the Movement memory = space-time master’s degree.
