Fake Walls Video: single-channel Colour, stereo, pal, 4:3, Mini DV 8’ 23’’ This video follows the actions of a person carrying a painted canvas depicting a fragment of a wall around the streets of a city, looking for the exact piece of wall on which the painting was based. Once it is found, the painting is put in place and compared to the original surface. This process is an inversion of the traditional process of painting, in that the object that originates the painting becomes the action’s point of arrival. Thus, each painting formally interacts with the surroundings from which it was “taken” through an attempt at duplication of shape, colour and texture.
