Introduction: from the body into objects
These canvases are the material result of performances by Cristina Elias, in which the artist writes a real-time diary inside a large canvas (approx 2m x 4m) with charcoal. After having finished each page, she erases the text with her own body, thus creating space to restart the writing over the already blured words. This process is repeated several times until the superposed layers of text creat an abstract image that gives form to the inner sea of narration.
