The task involved cleaning, approaching and discovering

The intensity of the utility of construction….

 

Always the same walls…

…and the floors,

Used and reused from the Gothic doen to the present…

 

Learning to live with a given,

And second hand structure,

like rummaging throught the pockets of an old coat,

setting the things one finds one a clean surface…

 

This house works like a chessboard.

The pieces move according to the rules of each object… They must

always return to the starting point to

restart the game…

 

Hence the floor,

Which set the existing items back  in front of the windows,

…or the paints on the walls, which

Reveals the discovered fragments,

are the rules of the game…

 

Amongst them, moving in an orderly fashion, are

tables,

books,

others…
