Artist Submission: Gemma AKA Espacios Parentesis.
"Lifetime spectator of great collagists, I suppose the next natural step was trying to make them myself. Now, cutting and paste has become more a need than a choice. Amateur, self-taught, I still feel like an intruder. I am an Architect who sees public space as a “moving collage” of differences. A crossroad of endless disciplines addressed to serve as tools to understand the everyday of human existence. I understand Architecture practice as a lifelong learning process, a continuous questioning which will find its answer in social reality, as a net of different natures in progress connecting at different scales and multiple levels.
Collage is my way to look for some answers, putting them together and trying to get some sense out of it. It helps me understand some things, without having to think about them. Collage has a privileged relationship with our epoch, the latter being understood as a juxtaposition of heterogeneities; a contingent net upon the temporary meeting points, their fugues and voids included. The disappearance of every kind of hierarchy and an assemblage of inequalities. Overlapped messages which texturize ephemeral realities, only fulfilled if related with the environment."
