"Mid-Sentence crosses through the boundaries of one’s own stories, spaces and dreams, exploring both the notions of absence and presence, as two interrelated concepts. Starting from the notion of absence as existing matter the work intends to give body to nothingness by making use of technologies, not as speedy return, but as a resource for the generation of something else. This installation focuses on the fragility of materials when exposed to one another and on how sculpture can be experienced not only by its physical qualities but by the intra-actions established between different elements in one space, or even in one building as a whole. Such spatial conditions introduce to the work a continuity only perceived through imagination."
