Advertising poster on paper
60cm x 76cm (series of 3)
Exhibition: QUAL PAISAGEM, Livraria Sá da Costa Galeria, Lisbon, 2019
The process of carefully dissecting a shop advertising poster clears my previous expectation of consumption, creating a clean path for the imagination to reignite. Exploring the theatre behind the spectacle of advertising, the work attempts to expose the fragility of it whilst simultaneously not denying the attraction of it. Reshuffling our perception of image as the main sense, I work with touch, space, and intuition. I realign the image, transforming its position in space, allowing it to stretch past the size of a human, up and out of my own perceived confinements as a spectator, shopper, artist, label.
