Snapshots from the Arsenale


I really liked this, canvas, ribbon, rubber, thread...

I was very impressed by the  the work of Fernando Prats showed at the  Chilean  pavilion. His project is called "Big South".  I watched a video showing his epic search for "marks" by rubbing large sheets of paper against  destroyed houses covered in ashes, streets and objects left behind after the eruption of the Chaitén vulcano and the 2009 earthquake in Chile. I've seen  later that this is called "frottage", and that he uses techniques such as "smoke on paper", "rubble on paper"...
