Apenas (Just)



My commentary, 2018


Soon after making the set Risky Risk (Risco Arisco), I risked with the series Just  (Apenas)... that, if it is to be shown, I prefer to show in column with the Just an Old News to the foot of the column, in the ground. (I love the idea Old News). The rest of them do not need to be in order.

In an exhibition of 2010 the piece Just An Old News was lost. It was found, finaly, and returned to me many years later, although the base in which it was installed arrived before, in 2013, without the work.

But there was some trace: Just an Old News is composed of a pile of newspapers more than 15 years old, moldy, and over it a plate of glass of 5 mm, so heavy that made the newspapers leave, over the base, almost invisibles traces like its inheritance. A Dead News.

On that "dead news" I installed another glass plate, the same size and thickness as the previous one, with the letters of its title in autoadhesive vinyl, disposed randomly, with some of them composing the three words of the title.

Just a  Dead News.

Note: In this segment the series Just  appears twice. One by oneself, the other as part of the Risco Arisco collection. Clicking on Risco Arisco that appears at the top of the second block you go to its complete collection.
