“In S/T (Bend Building), I tried to play with the idea of transforming these papers into a sculpture. I used the morphological capacity of paper to build up micro fragments of cities, with the simple act of cutting and folding an A3 format paper sheet. This series evokes some of the sculptural gestures of the first Russian avant-garde and certain visual propositions of the Brazilian neo-concretism movement. It tries to appropriate these shapes in order to create a visual space that suggests both potential and utopist worlds. At the same time these structures refer to the essence of the sculptorical and architectural creation as primary forms.”
