Take Spaces and Make Them New, La Pedrera

Sunny autumn days in Uruguay. During a two week residency run by Curatoria Forense. I got to know the small beachside town of La Pedrera. The crashing waves and sand dunes made a stunning back drop, but what interested me more was the deserted ghostly feeling of the town. There are only 150 permanent residents, however during the summer the town swells to 20, 000 holiday makers mainly from Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil.

I found an empty kiosk used during February’s carnival to dispense drinks and chose it to make the latest installation for the work Take Spaces and Make Them New.

The newspaper filled the space hanging by threads. As the wind blew in through the broken glass the forms knotted and became something new.
