    Photocopies | 2014

The work revolves around photocopying books from a library collection. Each photocopy is a choice, a perspective, an encounter or a comment towards an artist’s work. What I find appealing in this process is the vulnerability of the work to transformation at my hand. When making a photocopy I am transgressing the authority and power of the images and respective artists by submitting them to a simple mechanism of reproduction.
