What can a black wax tablet; titled The Other; (size: 25 X 105 X 3.5 cm) mounted on the wall â€“ sitting on a Plexiglas support; similar to an archaeological find; tell us? Could it be a piece found from the future? Is it a piece from the past?
A line of written letters â€“ created by pins inserted into the wax tabletâ€“ appears partially covered by what may look like a volcanic eruption. The sentence inserted in the tablet is a free-extension of the notion The Invisible by Merleau-Ponty. Does it give a clue to the find? What are the pixels created by the pins; what do they tell?
Is the image in a phase of appearance/emergence â€“ a discovery of a new reality/culture/memory or is it sinking; disappearing?
The motivation in this work; as well as in two of my video works discussed; is to reveal what is already present but may be obscured and thus to illuminate the linkage between memory; history and processes of migration.
