Incision is an exhibition composed of images of three objects: a glove (Golden Gate Bridge, 2018), a remote (Several Channels, 2018) and a telescopic scope (1 Click 1/8, 2018). They are objects that refer us to the idea of distance, since they have the functionality of mediating a sensorial - tactile, visual and auditory – connection. These mediations function as bridges inscribing an incision in the landscape, a line joining two points. Displaced from their original function, these objects are now at the center of the viewer's eyes, they are the protagonists and not the intermediaries. The background behind the pieces has a mondrian organization, as if they were pantones or color tests, which suggests an exercise of visual inquiry.
