The Library is an installation of over 2000 pieces of glass arranged on the floor following a morphological and size-based order. The artwork condenses an inventory of materials used by the artist: discarded pieces of blown borosilicate glass from artisan workshops. Thus, a vulnerable, discarded, and incomplete material forms a carpet on the floor, creating a fabric that exists between science and craftsmanship. Simultaneously, it invites the audience to imagine the uses and functions to which these elements were intended, entering a fictional territory.
Inside the room, two artworks play with the translucency of objects through photography and light. On one hand, Athena provides a constant and rhythmic sound to the installation, using a slide projector that displays studio photographs of the most damaged glass pieces from the collection. These images transform into luminous drawings of floating silhouettes. Adjacent to it, two light boxes showcase two frames that, in this case, reveal the more abstract interiors of two of the pieces. Here, we enter a language that unveils the interior of the glass, while also reminiscent of the interior of the human body, a connection reinforced by the similarity in format between the photographic material used and an X-ray.
