Unconcerned with the truth (2015)

Metàfora, Barcelona

 

This project began when I found a strange object in the bushes near a park. Had someone accidently dropped the object in the bushes? Who had it belonged to? The object had (seemingly forever) lost its history. I decided to give it its history back.

 

The investigation and the history of Pablo Avelas teeth led to several other investigations: About what it takes for a place to exist; about what happens when the fake creates something real; about what it takes for a popcorn to be real (and what you would choose, having a choice).
