OTSEFINAM
2013

Installation, Graphite pencil on stencilled letters

Otsefinam is a drawing installation where I use the content from the manifesto of the japanese 50's Gutai group. The text becomes the material of the drawing installation. The piece develops in two parts.
5261 letters were drawn in a grid with their order inverted making a mural. To be able to read the entire text one has to go backwards starting from the bottom right to the top left of the wall. The second part consists in erasing the text from the end -top left- case by case till the bottom right. The whole text thus remaining contained in the rubber swarf from the eraser on the floor.
