Photographic prints on tracing paper, glass, metal and natural hair
7 x 7 x 126 cm / 3 x 3 x 49 in
For MEDEA I photographed the bars, doors and gates that hold us at home. More than the official discourse of protecting us from the evil that lives outside, these culturally accepted elements often confine us without choice in the domestic environment as if it were always safe.
The photographs were printed on delicate tracing paper and wrapped around a glass tube, from which the female hair comes. The interior that no one sees. A metal clamp that has only fit for closure, holds the assembly, compresses and tests the fragility of the glass that resists in the crumb.
