I brought to France some of the Cuban books that had survived the “reading” of termites in my grandfather’s library. With a beautiful and dangerous journey through the words and phrases that are missing, these volumes inspired me to create my own books without text, keeping the size of the originals. The work of reference contained a set of “official histories” and ways of thinking that I do not share anymore, so I disappeared the texts.
This proposal was part of the project How Many Worlds? Exhibition Away from the Keyboard, XII Biennial of Havana, Cuba.
This exhibition was supported by the French Institute, the French Embassy in Havana, ENSBA Lyon, the Higher Institute of Art of Havana and the Wifredo Lam Center.
