Archeology of Trauma

Contemporary Art Project

Work in progress / Tireless pursuit / Archeology of Trauma focuses on Franco’s furtive layoff spoor on the Garraf Coast line. It seeks to unveil the sublime of this strain. Through chemical reactions with acids, sulfurs and calcareous soils over metal plates, the coexistence of two mapping processes emerge drawing a territory where trauma blends with the onset of time.

“For Death must be somewhere in a society; if it is no longer (or less intensely) in religion, it must be elsewhere; perhaps in this image which produces Death while trying to preserve life.” —Roland Barthes. Camera Lucida
