Untitled (wires), 2012
Series of unique pieces
Untitled (wires) consists of collecting pieces of electric wires and peeling off their insulated covers in order to keep the copper conductors to be melted and transformed.
The work happens in two moments:
- The insulating plastic covers of the electric wires become an installation in the exhibition room, with an accompanying caption.
- Copper extracted from the wires is melted to become screws in various sizes. These screws are used for installing the works of other artists who participate in the same show or used as hanging pegs or any other way needed to attach, unite or fasten materials employed in the exhibition depending on the decision made by the team who does the installation.
Untitled (wires) has an open and free form; the piece is not fixed to a specific event or attached to one particular subject but can be reactivated in other contexts.
