Caracas’s urban structure is the focus of a cartographical representation of Caracas composed of drawings, prints, site-specific installations and an artist’s book as a catalog of the exhibition.
During the one-month work-residency in Caracas I’ve complete the research started from far away with the great contributions of two architects and an art-historian, whom helped me to expand my intuitions and research on Art, urban planning, utopias and realities in and about the city of Caracas. The whole work’s process is principally based on reflections on the observation of a space from the distance – physical and cultural – as well as the idea of altered perception made possible by the media used for the research itself.
