Ghosts of the Future (2017)


The theme of surface and depth also brings up the question of time: the present (traces of paint on the surface) and the past (photographic images of the past painted on the base).
Ghosts of the Future” questions the time of now. The future, as seen by those people at a certain point in the past, is the present where we are now, and in the same way, we exchange gazes with people in the future, many years from now, when more time will have passed. As the dead.
