“InterSpace” consists of a series of heterogeneous images: Geometrical figures depicting something strictly defined but at the same time not obeying to natural laws, unnatural. Bodies and plants levitating in space. Elements placed in places they shouldn’t be. The images as a whole are intertwined: the natural and the artificial, the real and the fictional converge forming an interspace, a hybrid place – non-place. Inside this dynamic space, where rules of normality are shattered, new relationships are formed. However, a place and a non-place will always be parts of a polarized reality: The former can never completely be eliminated while the latter can never be totally completed.
