1988 – Sacrifice (Representation)

Sacrifice (Representation)

Coconut plant, iron, photographic print, soil

The process when showing this work consisted on taking a picture of the coconut leaves, cutting them out according to the shape of the photo print, and sticking the picture to the wall as substitute. This work was shown twice and, even if I took care of watering the coconut, the plant died in both occasions. Another instance of the theme of fixation but pointing this time to the fact that representation ends with the phenomenon represented.
