3 ambientes a estrenar 

. 3 Rooms.Brand new, freshly painted.


After having a phone interview or directly attending to a place published by a newspaper ad, I searched constantly on a “2 rooms; freshly painted” pattern, for which I created a character and invented a story which serves as an excuse to be allowed to take the pictures in the place. This whole arrangement relates to the staging of situations created from the invention of a character, developing a performance out of the search for specific locations that enable me to reach certain places in the city, which would otherwise remain restricted.


This project is composed by different layers of representation about the same action:


. A hidden camera type of video about my visits to apartments for sale, in the character of someone who intends to acquire real estate. While the camera moves through the spaces, the salesman describes an empty place, filling it with possibilities and uses, and making use of diverse commercial strategies.


. A series of paintings of a large format about the empty apartment’s interiors. They are painted in different tones of white, using different brightness levels with a minimum contrast. I use industrial paint, acrylic and synthetic enamel. Taking the same action, I use painting to create a more abstract and symbolic level of representation.


. A series of photographs taken on site


. A Site specific installation that takes the formal aspect of the action of visiting apartments for rents and creates a fictitious scene folding the elements of the real spaces into the exhibition space
