ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Loco in Loco is a research by the artist Deborah Engel, about what we look and what we can see. There’s a “gap” between this two issues that is the point of interest for the artist, which works with situations of displacement using the photography as a instrument for those operations.
The artist presents photograph-sculptures mades by collages of 17 photographies with the same image. This assemblage shows a new and vertiginous perspective of the space, fixing the eye of the viewer into a lecture guided by the rhythm of the collages that subvert the perspective of the space: The space grows and decreases at the same time while the viewer watches the piece.
The viewer is invited into a new dimension: a dimension connected by the intuition, the feeling, the look that he usually he never does.
