About

Presence would not be perceived without absence and absence would not be perceived without presence.
What is materially absent still influences people’s experience of the material world, taking power on people’s conceptualizations of themselves and the world they engage with.

Referring to “presence of absence” as a paradox that shows how presence and absence inherently depend on one another to be fully realised and even conceptualised. As absences imply and direct attention towards presence, how can we portray something that is not there, delineating a form out of nothing?
The experience of a void happens when you perceive about something that should be there but is not, creating incomplete parts that are impossible to be fully interpret and thus remain mute generating a silence that is what distinguishes a void from an empty space.
Boundaries come alive in the space, where traces and remnants conceive their physicality that tell something new about something gone.

Absence is an homage, a celebration to presence and its fleeting immateriality that wants us to look at here and now while placing ourselves in the vastness of time passing by.
